Stereogum are previewing a track from the country-rock pioneer Chris Hillman, a founding member of both the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers, who is putting out his first album in over a decade next month. “Appropriately entitled Bidin’ My Time, the LP was produced by Tom Petty, and Hillman decided to show his appreciation by including a cover of Petty’s own “Wildflowers” on the tracklist. His version is warm, lived-in, and lovely, starting out with just guitar and Hillman’s tender vocals before gradually building up into a lush front-porch symphony.” We can’t embed it sorry but you can hear it over at Stereogum here, and you can hear the lovely original below.
