English singer Anna Calvi and David Byrne (Talking Heads) teamed up to record a cover of ‘Strange Weather’, originally by Keren Ann. The song will be released on 14th July as a part of the 5 track covers EP, produced by Thomas Bartlett, who previously collaborated with bands such as The National i Antony and the Johnsons. Haunting cover and you will definitely hear strong Anna Calvi’s influence here.
Listen / watch also:
Last weekend Arctic Monkeys played Madison Square Garden in New York. Since it was also the 50th anniversary of when The Beatles showed up on ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’, Arctic Monkeys paid tribute to their British friends and covered ‘All My Loving’. Far from the legend, but there’s something about it.
The band from Oklahoma have just released their own, alternative interpretation of the old, The Beatles’ hit ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’. And despite all the criticism about it and actually quite an impressive number of The Flaming Lips haters , I like it a lot 🙂
