Listen to Florence + The Machine cover “Try A Little Tenderness” below.
Whenever I read that one of “today’s” artists has covered a track by an outright legend, an idol, or a hero of mine I approach with a grimace on my face, as they very rarely do a good job of it.
Florence Welch with her machine have managed to pull off a cover of the Motown classic “Try A Little Tenderness”, made internationally famous by Otis Redding‘s 1966 hit.
It was recorded as part of MTV Unplugged (yup, that’s happening again) that they recorded and are subsequently releasing. The fact that we’re posting it means it passes our seal of approval, but does it pass yours?
