Natalie Maines - Natalie Maines Debuts Beach Boys Cover

Natalie Maines has premiered her first new material for nearly five years.
Natalie Maines, the American singer-songwriter and Dixie Chicks star, has premiered her cover of the Beach Boys classic 'God Only Knows'. Fans of the star have waited nearly five years, since her 2006 Grammy Award winning album 'Taking the Long Way', to hear new recorded material. People Magazine began streaming the Maines new track yesterday (14th March 2011), which has been recorded for the series finale of the Hbo show 'Big Love', set to air on 20th March 2011. Despite the new material, Maines insists she has no plans to record a solo album or follow her Dixie Chicks band mates Martie Maguire and Emily Robinson, who recently formed the Court Yard Hounds.
Natalie Maines' cover of 'God Only Knows' features a "drizzle of keyboard and bleating organs" and was produced by legendary rock guru Rick Rubin in Malibu, California at the end of January 2011. Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers plays drums on the track. The song was also made available on iTunes today (15th March 2011).

kmonic and Icfur and the boneheads who are still banging on with the Natalie hate: Let it go already. Gees, what's wrong with you people? There is nothing in this article remotely related to politics. You keep telling Natalie to "shut up and sing" and that you don't care to hear about her political views...however you seem to think that anyone cares about yours. Shut up and listen. Do any of you honestly think anyone cares about your views anymore than you care about Natalie's? You're the ones making everything with her name attached political, not her. If you don't like her, don't buy her music, but get the hell over it. It's old news.

Just maybe some people don't appreciate some witch getting rich after she bad mouths our country, refuses to say she was wrong, no appollogy or anything. I hope she goes broke and is booed where ever she might go.

Can't wait for all the Chicks to record together again. I miss them. True talent is in short supply these days.

The Dixie Chicks were awesome but I stopped paying attention when Natalie made her nasty anti-American comments a few years back. She is free to say what she wants while I am free not to pay any attention to her music.

I love Natalie but I'm so not interested in her rendition of a classic who's original version really cant be topped. It was also recorded oddly enough by Mandy Moore and Michael Stipe for a soundtrack, I forgot what movie. Dear Natalie, When you reunite with Martie and Emily and record a new Dixie Chicks album, I'll be the first to buy it. Please do it soon, careers in music and show business are fleeting and you might find yourself in a position where you'll look back and say, "I should've done it when I was still hot." Don't go there. Love, xx, JohnTo those people who posted those hateful lies in the comments section here, have you had your head in the sand for the past decade? Obviously, Natalie said nothing anti American and as it turns out, she was right!
