Ministry of Sound released a compilation back in April of 09 titled Uncovered, which featured covered songs by various artists and now they are back with Volume 2.
"Uncovered breathes new life into tracks that you’ve already grown to love once before. A double CD of intelligent re-workings of hits, both young and old, by artists from across the musical spectrum. From classical to dance, from indie-rock to chilled out acoustic; each cover steers the original into uncharted territory, giving you new reasons to enjoy favourites from MGMT, Marvin Gaye, Madonna, Portishead, Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Kanye West, Dire Straits, Amy Winehouse, Australian Crawl, Leonard Cohen, Beyonce and SO many more…."
You can check out 2 of our favorites featuring The xx covering the Womack & Womack classic “Teardrops” and Air covering Frank Sinatra's "The Way You Look Tonight" on the player below. Other stand outs from the album feature Rihanna’s “Don’t Stop The Music” covered by Jamie Cullum, Ben Lee's take on MGMT “Kids”, KRAM's rework of Portishead “Glory Box”, and Lily Allen’s interpretation of Britney Spears “Womanizer”. At this time, there are no plans for release of the compilation in the US but you can always check back with us or at the MoS homepage here.
