Cheyenne's Beau Jennings recently sat down with friend/writer/musician Becky Carman to answer some questions about the history of Cheyenne, the vinyl reissue of I Am Haunted, I Am Alive, and the covers album Cheyenne Songs.
You can read the interview here.
Over the next few weeks we'll be sharing some covers from Cheyenne Songs. We really loved Student Film's take on one of our favorite Cheyenne tracks "The Whale". Keep checking back for more covers as we get closer to the release date.
Cheyenne Songs is available as a digital download exclusively with the purchase of I Am Haunted, I Am Alive.
We are very excited to announce the track list for Cheyenne Songs, the collection of Cheyenne covers that will be included as a download with purchase of the I Am Haunted, I Am Alive LP. This album contains some of the absolute best and most talented artists around, and we're thrilled and honored to have them involved in this project. The only way to get these songs is to buy the record, which is available for preorder now (and going fast...)

Cheyenne's classic album I Am Haunted, I Am Alive to be reissued on vinyl April 13, 2018
Led by songwriter Beau Jennings, the Norman-based americana/indie-rock band Cheyenne helped pioneer Oklahoma's burgeoning original music renaissance in the early 2000's. Cheyenne's debut album I Am Haunted, I Am Alive was originally released on Kansas City based label The Record Machine in 2005, and became an instant classic within the Oklahoma music scene and beyond, eventually being named one of Oklahomarock.com's top 10 records of the 2000's. Clerestory AV is proud to now make Haunted available for the first time on LP through a limited edition pressing of 200 copies on 150-gram clear vinyl. The record has been remastered for vinyl by TW Walsh, and includes a full color inner sleeve showcasing stunning original artwork by Jamison Hunt.
Included as a special bonus with the record will be a digital download of Cheyenne Songs, a collection of covers by friends of the band including John Moreland, BRONCHO, Samantha Crain, Travis Linville, and over 20 others, with a full track list to be announced soon. This collection is currently available exclusively with purchase of LP.
“If you combine the breathy, deep vocals of Pedro The Lion's David Bazan with the wistfulness of Sufjan Stevens, you might get Cheyenne's Beau Jennings... Jennings differs by approaching the singer/songwriter sphere from a frontier-Western perspective, addressing themes of spritituality and heartache during times of turmoil.” - Magnet Magazine
“His influences are varied: he tells stories like Tom Waits, ask questions like Bob Dylan and sings like Jeff Tweedy. But Jennings is better than the sum of his parts, and Cheyenne has just raised the bar for musicians and audiences alike...” - Fran Magazine
“Beau Jennings...sure does not disappoint. [Cheyenne’s] ability to make accessible countrified pop is authentic, with or without the slick production; although the production on I Am Haunted, I Am Alive is damn near flawless... We’ll let’s see, Conor has Nebraska, Sufjan has Michigan, maybe Jennings has Oklahoma?” - Silence Magazine
