Supernatural Thing is one of my all-time favorite songs. A true classic. I love Ben E. King‘s version so much that we wanted to honor him and the two songwriters, Gwen Guthrie & Patrick Grant, with a new version for 2013.
Supernatural Thing was written by the late, great Gwen Guthrie and her partner, Haras Fyre (known professionally as Patrick Grant). Ben E. King recorded Supernatural Thing and it became his major comeback hit in 1975, when the song reached #1 on the R+B charts. In fact, the album was titled Supernatural Thing, featuring both Part 1 and Part 2 of Supernatural. What a history!
I wanted to be true the original with our version, yet bring a new interpretation to the song – so to salute Ben E. King, we created an album cover that references his own, in which I could literally ‘tip my hat’ to him. I even found a 1970’s fedora for the photo session!
Thank you Mr. King! You’re Supernatural!
