Watch Postmodern Jukebox Deliver Soulful Rendition of Radiohead’s ‘Creep’
Postmodern Jukebox have a knack for transforming songs into unexpected covers, and their latest edition is no exception. With the help of former American Idol contestant Haley Reinhart, the New York-based outfit has taken Radiohead’s iconic Pablo Honey cut, “Creep,” from brooding alt-rock to haunting soul. Check it out above.
Reinhart’s gritty powerhouse vocals are joined by a brass section, stand-up bass and piano, making for a vintage interpretation of the Radiohead original. Previously, Postmodern Jukebox have tackled everyone from Lorde and the Postal Service to Hozier and Tove Lo.
It was recently announced that Radiohead’s third full-length, OK Computer, would be included in the Library of Congress’ 2015 registry. The 1997 album was one of 25 recordings selected to be archived due to their cultural, historical and aesthetic significance.
Earlier this year, Radiohead’s Philip Selway -- who dropped his sophomore solo effort, Weatherhouse, last year -- revealed that the English alt-rockers have been working on a ninth album. Whenever it arrives (Selway made no promises or estimations in that regard), it will follow 2011’s The King of Limbs.
