The Swell Season - Young Hearts Run Free (Candi Staton Cover)
Earlier this week, I let loose a piece of info surrounding Levi's, cover songs, and the new chaps who are taking on the timeless tunes. Last go 'round it was Nas doing his best Slick Rick. In this installment, we go grassroots via disco with The Swell Season, and their take on Candi Staton's Young Hearts Run Free.
It;s the second in the series of Levi's Pioneer Sessions, and the Irish duo makes us forget that Staton ever had a disco-pop hit with her original. It's passionate and fragile, with a throttling of deep bass drums that turn the classic upside down and out.
Say word...this is spectacular.
