There are certain evergreens in the history of pop music which are so full of musical beauty that they just won’t grow odd. Classics that will live longer than their original recording. Don’t Give Up, the 1986 duet between PETER GABRIEL and KATE BUSH, is such a song. While the original already marks a great example of how pop music also can be highly emotional and heart-wrenching, this new version by Canada’s FEIST and her fellow countrymen TIMBER TIMBRE is almost as beautiful as the original. It’s giving the original a certain dark folk twist while the intimate atmosphere of the original song gets even more meaningful.
The version is taken from the upcoming PETER GABRIEL tribute album And I’ll Scratch Yours where artists like ELBOW and ARCADE FIRE cover songs of the legendary musician. Past meets present in the most beautiful way. It’s tonight’s sound of the night – get ready to fall for it right here.
