In the wake of Dolores O’Riordan’s passing, Amanda Palmer and Jherek Bischoff have released their string quartet covers of The Cranberries’ “No Need to Argue” and “Zombie.” Her “Zombie” cover is especially powerful. Stream and buy the songs at Bandcamp. All proceeds benefit the charity Chernobyl Children International.
Oh it’s everything I hoped it would be. Juliana Hatfield puts just enough of a rock guitar riff on this Olivia Newton-John cover to make it fresh, but her angelic soprano remains true to the original. It’s like when my older sister used to play her ONJ vinyl records and sing to me. I love it so much.
Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John will be released on April 13, 2018.
I’m ridiculously excited about this! My earliest memory is my older sister playing Olivia Newton-John vinyl albums. Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John will be released on April 13th and features all my old fave ONJ songs (mostly from Xanadu).
