Covers covers covers! I love covers! But only really great covers, don't you worry!
The man with the gorgeous voice that haunts you in your sleep, James Vincent McMorrow has covered a personal favorite of mine "Higher Love" by the legend that is Steve Winwood.
I absolutely love how a cover from an artist that isn't particularly of the same genre can transform a song into something you wouldn't have expected it to ever be able to pull off and this cover in particular does just that.
