Acclaimed American singer-songwriter, Noah Kahan, unveiled a stirring cover of Jason Isbell’s track, “If We Were Vampires“, along with a captivating live performance video on May 10, 2023. The rendition is part of the renowned Spotify Singles series and features the distinctive vocal talent of Wesley Schultz from the American folk-rock band, The Lumineers.

Isbell’s original version of “If We Were Vampires” is a standout track from his 2017 album, “The Nashville Sound“. The touching cover by Kahan and Schultz was skillfully produced by Gabe Simon and Kahan himself, with a live video shot against the picturesque backdrop of Denver.

Reflecting on the experience, Kahan expressed his joy and awe. “Having the opportunity to perform one of the greatest songs ever with one of my biggest influences ever was a highlight of my life. I was so mesmerized by The Lumineers’ sound and storytelling while growing up. The idea that I would sing a song with Wesley in his hometown would have been shocking to my younger self,” Kahan shared.

The heartfelt tribute is a profound exploration of the passage of time, aging, and the essence of true love. Kahan expressed his gratitude towards Schultz, Simon, and Spotify for their support in this endeavor. His cover of “If We Were Vampires” promises to enthrall fans of both Kahan and Isbell, reinforcing Kahan’s admiration for his musical inspirations.
