Chloe x Halle have shared their rendition of Ray Charles’ “Georgia on My Mind.”
The Bailey sisters give the classic ballad a modern twist with their jazzy vocals stylings over groovy, bass-heavy instrumentals. “No peace, no peace I find / Just an old, sweet song / Keeps Georgia on my mind,” they harmonize on the chorus.
The pair’s cover of “Georgia on My Mind” will be featured in a new ESPN commercial, ahead of the Masters golf tournament, which is set to take place in Augusta, Georgia next month. “We are happy to be given the opportunity to record our version of the timeless ‘Georgia On My Mind’ for the Masters Tournament,” the duo said in a statement.
The “Georgia on My Mind” cover is Chloe x Halle’s first release since sharing the Chrome Edition of their Grammy-nominated album, Ungodly Hour. The sisters were up for Best Progressive R&B Album at the 2021 Grammy Awards, but ultimately lost to Thundercat’s It is What it is.
