"Whatever's Right," a song from The Monkees' forthcoming album Good Times!, appeared on Amazon early Friday morning. The track could be downloaded from their deluxe version of the album. Rhino's John Hughes noted on Facebook that the song was accidentally made live instead of the latest single, "Me & Magdalena," and commented on this vintage Boyce & Hart composition that was revived for the new album:
"If we had more time, 'Whatever's Right' was going to be the next 'single' before release date. Our accelerated schedule removed that possibility...There was much internal debate that 'Whatever's Right' should NOT be a pre-release single because it sounds so much like a 1967 outtake rather than the built-from-scratch new recording that it is."
UPDATE: Michael Nesmith, Bobby Hart, and Coco Dolenz provide backing vocals on "Whatever's Right" while Peter Tork plays keyboards.
UPDATE #2 @ 4PM: Amazon has taken down "Whatever's Right" and made "Me & Magdalena" available instead.
