Jessie Ware cover
Wild Cub

A cover version is the ultimate sign of affection.

Taking someone else's song, twisting it to fit your own style, your own approach. It's a direct nod towards an artist's influence, a way of stating someone else's importance within the pantheon of musical heroes you draw inspiration from.

So Jessie Ware should feel rightly flattered by Wild Cub's latest gesture. A duo formed by Keegan DeWitt and Jeremy Bullock, their addiction to perfect pop has witnessed impressive performances at SXSW, CMJ and more.

Completing work on their debut album, Wild Cub are set to release 'Youth' early next year via Big Light Recordings. By way of a preview, the pair have decided to cover a track which has got under their skin - Jessie Ware's 'Running'.

A rightfully faithful rendition, Wild Cub's interpretation of Jessie Ware is respectful to the original while adding their own slant on the song.
