The REO Brothers first came to our attention with their stellar Beatles covers. More than that, they also took on other 1950s and 1960s classic hits like those from Bee Gees and The Dave Clark Five. Initially composed of four brothers, they have now added a new member and what better way to introduce him than to play their own version of The Eagles 1976 track “New Kid in Town”?

As expected, it’s much better than most renditions on the internet and from the vocals to the musicianship, they definitely delivered the goods.

“New Kid in Town” was featured on The Eagles’ magnum opus “Hotel California” and released as the album’s first single.

According to J.D. Souther who co-wrote the song with Don Henley and Glenn Frey, “‘New Kid’ emerged from our whole fascination with gunfire as an analogy. The point was at some point some kid would come riding into town that was much faster than you and he’d say so, and then he’d prove it. That’s the story of life. That’s the story of aging, especially coming out of your teenage and young man years and as you approach 30, you begin to see that things don’t stay the same forever. And that there’s a lot other guys like you and gals like you that want the same thing that are coming up, and they want their moment, too, and they’re going to get it. And it’s fine. It’s as it should be.”
