Carly Rae Jepsen recently stopped by the Spotify Studios in New York as part of the streaming service’s Spotify Singles series.
Typically, the series sees an act perform an alternate version of one of their hits along with a cover. In the past, this has yielded the likes of Phoebe Bridgers giving her rendition of The Cure’s ‘Friday I’m In Love’, Death Cab for Cutie covering ‘My Backwards Walk’ by Frightened Rabbit and Lily Allen taking on the Tears for Fears classic ‘Mad World’.
For her visit, Carly Rae chose the iconic No Doubt hit ‘Don’t Speak’. Instrumentally, her rendition stays fairly true to the 90’s original, but it’s still a lot of fun.
CRJ is set to hit Australian shores in November for her first ever shows here, playing a pair of headline dates – in Sydney and Melbourne respectively – along with a slot at Brisbane’s SandTunes festival.
Listen to Jepsen’s cover of ‘Don’t Speak’ – along with a live rendition of Dedication cut ‘Want You In My Room’ – below.
