Sometimes there are straight up awesome cover versions that have the ability to surprise and this one hits that mark!!! Sophie Ellis-Bextor has recorded a cover of Arcade Fire’s – Rebellion (Lies) and there’s no tinkering or tampering, just a good old fashioned cover!!!
However, saying all that, when you have a track done by in a format by an artist that doesn’t normally fit into that genre, it’s even better when the track does the job. Particularly this one. Outstanding stuff!!
This track features on the album ‘Songs To Save A Life’ which is a unique collection of original tracks and inspirational covers featuring KT Tunstall, James Morrison, Sophie-Ellis Bextor, The Overtones, Ed Harcourt, Lucie Silvas and many more. In aid of Samaritans.
Available to download from 3rd October 2011.
