Listen to Mac Demarco’s cover of ‘Honey Moon’ by Japanese artist Haruomi Hosono

Previously live streamed to his secret YouTube channel CAM TONY

Mac Demarco has officially released his cover of Haruomi Hosono’s ‘Honey Moon’ after it was originally live streamed on his secret YouTube channel CAM TONY.

Demarco has been working on new material for the past month or so, livestreaming his sessions from his studio. Most of it has been segments of songs or lackadaisical playing around, but occasionally a full song will emerge, including this recent cover.

You can listen to Demarco’s version of ‘Honey Moon’ below and Haruomi Hosono’s original song below that.
