The next installment of covers from City And Colour has dropped with Dallas Green giving the timber and steel service to Bic Runga’s hit Captured, one of two songs featured on his latest offering Covers Pt. 3.
The track was originally released on Runga’s 2005 album Birds. Whilst both tracks present a gloomy tale of love gone awry, that’s where the parallels start and finish. When coated in his pseudo-bluesy chops, Green managers to transform the track into a far more aggressive and determined affair.
For those yet to connect the dots, Covers Pt.3 is the third installment of Green’s covers series and also features a rendition of Alicia Key’s anthem Un-Thinkable (I’m Ready).
Digitally, the release is available via http://www.cityandcolour.com and or http://www.dinealonerecords.com with a number of physical options available, though those numbers a very limited.
City And Colour will be returning to Australia for a solid run of dates next month.
