Doveman Does The Lillywhite Sessions

Last week, Doveman went on NPR's World Cafe to showcase a few songs from his formerly-free, now-streaming Footloose.

The show features the Bacon-staples "Footloose," "Dancing In The Sheets," and "Almost Paradise," all re-recorded by Thomas with British producer Steve Lillywhite (U2, Peter Gabriel, The Pogues, Psychedelic Furs) as part of NPR's The Lillywhite Sessions at Avatar Studios. Previous guests have included She & Him, Fleet Foxes, and Dr. Dog.

The show also includes an interview with Thomas explaining both the creation of the Footloose covers and the genesis of Doveman. In addition, Lillywhite gives a brief interview at the end, providing his British take on the Footloose film and soundtrack.
