Every week, CBC Music will post a cover tune for you to check out. Whether they are older tracks or new ones, we’ll be searching for some gems. Feel free to post your favourites below, we appreciate your suggestions!
Some cover songs are just damn risky, others might introduce you to an unknown band and many sound almost too close to the original. I find the best are a complete reimagining of a track, like this sultry version of Janelle Monáe’s “Tightrope” by Parisian duo The Dø.
