Big Joanie Returns With “Today” Featuring Kim Deal

July 11, 2023

Riding high of the success of last year’s phenomenal Back Home, Big Joanie’s back with a new version of album standout “Today.” The band enlists alt rock royalty Kim Deal on a duet with guitarist and vocalist Stephanie Phillips that perfectly captures the lofi roots of both artists. Based around the original demo, the song plays it faster and looser, with the contrast between the voices pushed to the forefront. It’s raw and jangly in all the right ways.

 

Stephanie Phillips says of the collaboration “We are immensely proud to announce our new version of ‘Today’ featuring Kim Deal. Whether through Pixies, Breeders, or her solo work, Kim has been a vital influence on us as a band and we’re so happy that she’s become part of the Big Joanie world. Originally this was a song we were working on years ago that Chardine was going to sing on. I found the old demo while we were on tour and started writing new lyrics to the music with my laptop balanced on my lap in the tour van. I really love that it sounds like a classic C86 type lo-fi indie song.”
