Listen: Ebony Bones Covers The Smiths

With a children's choir...
Ebony Bones

Ebony Bones has recruited a London based children's choir to cover a seminal single from The Smiths.

Ebony Bones isn't really like other artists. Cee-Lo Green hand picked the London based singer to open his 2011 European tour, and her open minded approach has witnessed collaborations with musicians from India and West Africa.

Now the artist is due to return to her roots. Heading back to London, Ebony Bones has recorded a cover of The Smiths' classic 1983 single 'What Difference Does It Make?'

That unmistakeable riff isn't tampered with, although the tempo is slowed and there's a suggestion of half-step in that slumped, slouched rhythm.

The most striking aspect of the recording, though, is the way in which Ebony Bones used the New London Children's Choir. It's both affecting and effective, with their impish whistling floating across the chorus. 

Listen to it below.

'What Difference Does It Make?' features on Ebony Bones' new EP 'I See I Say' - due for release on December 9th. Catch Ebony Bones at the following one off show:
