Feb. 14 — Blacktop Mojo is taking on a classic song for its latest single.
The band debuted its take on The Temptations’ timeless classic ‘My Girl‘ Monday. The song will be available to stream and purchase starting Feb. 25.
Blacktop Mojo’s take of ‘My Girl’ is the second new single that the band has released so far this year. The group debuted its previously unreleased song ‘Strike Me‘ and its companion lyric video last month.
Blacktop Mojo takes the song in a direction completely direction from the original song. Instead of the light, upbeat mood exhibited in The Temptations’ original song, this song instead is much more moody and brooding in its sound and approach.
Front man Matt James talked about the band’s take on the song.
“We all know this song,” said James. “It’s a song that comes on the radio or starts playing in the background as you’re in the grocery store and immediately you begin to hum along and have visions of the new girl you’re falling head over heels for, and you feel all the warm fuzzy feelings she gives you, welling up inside. Our version of the song is when you fast forward into that relationship with the same girl that gave you all that warmth and sunshine, but she’s up and left you and taken the ‘Month of May’ with her.”
In other news, Blacktop Mojo has a series of live dates scheduled for the month of March. The tour’s schedule is noted below. Tickets are available here.
