Free Download: Keane "Early Winter" (Gwen Stefani Cover)

I think I might like the single sleeve for Keane's version of Gwen Stefani's "Early Winter" more than the actual cover itself.

"Early Winter" is one of my favorite songs from Stefani's "The Sweet Escape" LP with its heartfelt sentiment and lingering melody rolled into a crisp production. The song was written for Stefani by Keane pianist and composer Tim Rice-Oxley and so it was only a matter of time before it would show up during one of Keane's live shows.

The group performed it for the first time live during an acoustic gig at London's Union Chapel on November 28. I am not too fond of Tom Chaplin's performance of the song. It just seems he's bending and breaking his vocals just a little too much to make it sound as slick as the original (or to make it his own). I rather listen to that crazy fun cover Keane did of Destiny's Child "Bootylicious." (Thanks to Corqsan for the heads up.)
