Fidlar have covered Sheryl Crow’s ‘If It Makes You Happy’. Scroll down to hear the song now.
The US-punk band have transformed the 1996 original into a much heavier song, complete with pych-pop verses and a scream heavy chorus. They have also synced the song up with Crow’s original video.
‘If It Makes You Happy’ is the latest one-off cover from Fidlar following their take on Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds’ ‘Red Right Hand’, which was debuted in 2013. A source has confirmed to Consequence of Sound that the band are currently working on the follow up to their self-titled debut album.
Fidlar have previously covered Blink-182’s ‘Dammit’, Creedence Clearwater Revival’s ‘Lodi’, Warren Zevon’s ‘Carmelita’ and Fear’s ‘I Don’t Care About You’.
The last band to create a high profile cover of a Sheryl Crow song were Haim, whose take on ‘Strong Enough’ can be heard here. In November 2013 they were joined live onstage by Lorde to perform the song during a gig at New York’s Roseland Ballroom.
