In a surprise drop by popular podcaster Tim Pool’s music label Trash House Records, Pool and producer Carter Banks debuted a chart-topping cover of Smokey Mike & The god-king’s hit song “Together Again.” 

Shortly after its midnight release, “Together Again” by Pool and Banks debuted at the top spot on the iTunes chart above hit songs like Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You” and “No More Dream” by BTS. Smokey Mike & the god-king performed “Together Again” live at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville last year during a Daily Wire “Backstage Live” event.

“In a sea of modern music that is increasingly lacking in quality, an iconic song that captured previous generations is being given new life for today’s generation,” Timcast said in a press release. “‘Together Again’ by the legendary duo Smokey Mike & The god-king–which saw an unprecedented 87-week run at the top of the Spicy 100 charts in 1967 and 1968–has long remained untouched by modern artists, which many say is a testament to its timeless brilliance and the revered, indelible mark it left on the music industry.” 

“Legendary Artists like Smokey Mike & The god-king have been largely overlooked by today’s mainstream music industry,” Timcast continued. “But Banks and Pool’s cover embraces the foundation laid by the duo, whose commitment to tradition, quality, and artistry was unshaken by the liberal counterculture movements of the decade — a quality often credited with their historic run at the top of the charts.” 

“All of these greats like The Beatles, Zeppelin, and Smokey Mike & the god-king–there are a lot of opportunities for modern versions that have not been done properly,” said Pool, who also hosts the popular streaming show, Timcast IRL. “Now, a lot of people have covered Zeppelin, of course, but no one’s done a good modern version of ‘Together Again.’ We realized if we get this right, it could be huge.”

Banks and Pool’s cover of “Together Again” is available now on thebestsongever.com, iTunes, Spotify, YouTube, and all major music platforms.
