Yesterday was the great late Lou Reed’s birthday, March 2. And to celebrate that day, South Florida dream pop duo Tim & Adam recorded their rendition of Reed’s iconic song “Perfect Day.” Just like the original’s dark and morose cold feeling, the duo’s cover also brings those feelings to earth with their version. Tim’s soft soothing vocals cry over Adam’s bubbling production full of subtle beats, percussion, and synths. They work together in harmony to the beauty out of the original in a much more sunshine-filled manner.
Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day” was recorded in 1972 and released on his sophomore solo album Transformer. Tim & Adam’s debut album is available now.
