The Daft Punk cover you didn't see coming
Come June 28, Natalie Imbruglia will release an album of cover versions titled 'Male.'
The Aussie songstress will cover some of music's most iconic male performers, like The Cure, Neil Young, Cat Stevens and, surprisingly, Daft Punk.
Imbruglia covers the French electro duo's track 'Instant Crush' (Random Access Memories, 2013) which is originally a collaboration with singer Julian Casablancas.
Of her cover, Imbruglia explains it's easier for people to "connect with the words" because her version won't have the same vocal effects as the original.
“You can’t really hear what the song is about on the original version because of the effects on Julian’s voice, which I love. However, it’s such a beautiful story that I want people to hear and connect with the words. I’m really proud of how it’s turned out.”
