Cover Song Month: Birdy – “1901″

I couldn’t do a month full of cover songs without including Birdy. She made a name for herself by covering Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love”.

She’s back covering Phoenix’s track, “1901″. I love how she deconstructs the melody and slows it down. Phoenix’s original is high-tempo, so a slowed-down version is very fresh.
