By the time Rave On Buddy Holly, a tribute to one of the original rockers, comes out, we'll have heard every track of indie-rock note. Here comes the latest leak from the album, a cover of "Not Fade Away" by Florence and the Machine, who render the song into a Tom Waits-esque funeral march, albeit with a chippier tone and less skronk. This is a pretty great showcase for Florence's voice, which can crush when she lets loose. I'm sure Buddy Holly never imagined a British lady covering him sounding like a New Orleans jazz band, but then again, dude couldn't have known that he'd still be revered decades after his death. Listen at Soundcloud.
Rave On is due out on June 28.
