The band have dressed down this favourite from previous album Death By Rock N Roll to its bare essence with a stirring and striking performance.
“Harley Darling is a love letter to Kato Khandwala,” says Taylor Momsen. “It’s as simple as that. So many of us have stories of losing loved ones, especially now, and I hope this song can be used in others’ healing as it was in my own.”

OTHER WORLDS collates striking acoustic renditions of some of the band’s own favourites featuring special guests. The recording of Elvis Costello’s (What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love And Understanding was Taylor Momsen’s first cover, originally performed for the Fearless At Home livestream in the midst of Covid. As another pandemic-era cover, Matt Cameron played guitar and sang as Taylor powered an airy and lithe reimaging of Soundgarden’s Halfway There, generating hundreds of thousands of views on its initial post. Iconic multi-instrumentalist, producer and artist Alan Johannes handled guitar on the band’s pensive and poetic interpretation of The Keeper, originally by Chris Cornell, while David Bowie pianist Mike Garson performed a stirring piano movement for Quicksand from The Thin White Duke.
