TVD Video Premiere: Trevor Hall, “Free Fallin'”

Hall is launching the West Coast leg of his “Fruitful Darkness Tour” this week, with 14 successive East Coast dates in the bag. The tour commenced with a performance on the mainstage of the KAABOO Festival, which welcomed a closing set by none other than Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers later that night. It was one of Tom’s final shows.

Today we’re proud to present Hall’s exclusive take on the Petty classic, “Free Fallin,” captured by the fine folks at Sugarshack Sessions at the Jannus Live Theater in Florida. It’s a song that’s been incorporated into his setlist since the late rocker passed earlier this month, and clearly a moment of cathartic jubilation for all those involved, including musical guests East Forest and Christina Holmes who take a stab at the final verses.

Hall has always been a deeply nuanced and singular artist, able to blend roots music with exotic world elements, his subject matter predominantly influenced by Eastern mysticism which makes this rare cover the most Americana-tinged piece of material he’s approached in a decade. The honey-dipped organ and wily fiddle solo all feel perfectly at home alongside the jangling iconic riff, but it is indubitably Trevor’s soulful take on the folk-rock staple that puts a refreshingly sultry spin on the time-honored hit.

Hall’s new album, The Fruitful Darkness, is being released in three song installments on specific lunar dates, culminating in the physical release early next year.
