Grace Cummings Covers Fatboy Slim

I never quite got into Fatboy Slim, but I do love a good cover especially when it's done by an artist who can open for the likes of Ezra Furman, Viagra Boys, and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. Grace Cummings delivers a fairly straightforward rendition of the 90's electronica classic "Praise You," although it is a more organic one. This cover is more of an organic rock/soul version while still keeping all the main elements of the original intact. While it's obviously a musically different version, you'll recognize it just from the music which doesn't always happen when a cover crosses genres like this. 

Grace Cummings says of the song:

No matter what happens, I’ll never get sick of this song and it will never get sick of making me happy. I’d never try to out do Camille Yarborough or Fatboy Slim… there’s no point. But to combine the two into a soul groove was something kinda our own and hopefully joyful in its own right.”

You can watch the video for Grace Cummings' version of "Praise You" below. The single is currently available here via ATO Records. For more on Grace Cummings, check out the artist on Facebook and Instagram.
