The Weeklings release "I've Just Seen A Face"

The Weeklings release "I

The Weeklings kicked off 2023 with the release of "I've Just Seen A Face" - a cover of The Beatles classic, reimagined as only The Weeklings can do.

Lefty Weekling (Glen Burtnik), came up with the idea for the band to record The Beatles classic. Lefty explained the trajectory. “When I was a kid, the 'Rubber Soul' album came out. Side One, track one was 'I've Just Seen A Face' here in the U.S. It was a bouncy, positive start to a wonderful disc.”

“The Weeklings have often enjoyed rearranging Beatles' music and decided to attempt our own take on this classic tune. Like our versions of 'The Word', ‘Baby You’re a Rich Man”, and ‘What’s The New Mary Jane?’, we added our own spin to this beloved song. The beat is different from the original, but I dare you to resist singing along with this amazing Paul McCartney melody!”

The lead vocals and harmonies soar beautifully above the dense, jangly guitars and driving drums. A sitar drone draws you into the track and takes you out. There's even a swirling and unexpected acapella moment! 

Lefty said Scooter Weekling (Marty Scott), JEM President, describes the track as being "Weeklingized!''
