Jose Gonzalez covers Massive Attack’s “Teardop” Mp3

Posted August 17th, 2007 by Eric Greenwood · 4 Comments

Another sparse and haunting acoustic cover from Jose Gonzalez, much in the vein of his famous version of The Knife’s “Heartbeat.” This time he tackles Massive Attack’s “Teardrop”, which is a daunting exercise, considering the fact that Elizabeth Fraser of the Cocteau Twins sings on the original, but he pulls it off. Highly recommended.

    I guess it isn’t “old” since it is on the new album. Though mp3s of the cover have been around for years. Odd choice for inclusion on a new album. But then again, MUTE re-released Veneer several years after it had originally been released, so apparently Jose isn’t in a hurry to release or record “new” material.
