THE CLARKS' "WONDERFUL WORLD" FEATURED IN THE SIMPSONS' 27th SEASON PREMIERE


NEW ALBUM REWIND CONTINUES TO FIND NEW FANS
BAND ANNOUNCES FALL TOUR DATES




Pittsburgh, PA - September 28, 2015 - The Clarks' version of the classic song "What a Wonderful World" (Produced by Sean McDonald) was featured, not once, but twice, in last night's 27th season premiere of The Simpsons.  First used in the latter part of the episode during Homer Simpson's dream sequence in which daughter Maggie sings the song a la Louis Armstrong which morphs into The Clarks' version upon Homer awakening, and then used again over the show's ending credits.  Clarks lead singer, Scott Blasey had this to say about this career highlight - "We've all been such huge fans of The Simpsons since we were young.  It's an honor to be a part of such an historic show.  This caps off an amazing year for the band with the release of our covers album Rewind, and continued support for our album, released last year, Feathers & Bones.  The band has been touring more and we feel we're hitting a new creative stride. "

The Clarks are not new to having their music featured on TV and in Film.  The band's song "Better Off Without You" was used as the theme song of the Anna Nicole Show and their song "Let It Go" was featured in the film Summer Catch to name a few.

The band's most recent release, Rewind is a compilation of cover songs by artists that were formative in the creation of the band's unique sound.  With songs by artists ranging from REM and The Smithereens to the Rolling Stones, this new release is both introducing fans to these classic artists and paving the way for new fans to discover the rich Clarks' catalog.
