Juliana Hatfield Covers ELO (Part 2)

For the second single off Juliana Hatfield's upcoming ELO covers album, she chose "Can't Get it Out of My Head." ELO is the artist I'm least familiar with for Hatfield's Juliana Hatfield Sings... series, and I'm not sure I've ever heard ELO's original. The cover is definitely much more orchestral and easy listening than we're used to from Hatfield, but it still fits right in with what she's been doing since the 90's. It's great when an artist can pay tribute to another artist and still be able to sound like themselves. After hearing the original, Hatfield's cover is basically spot on... but with just a little bit of 90's grit added in.

You can watch the video for Juliana Hatfield's cover of "Can't Get it Out of My Head" below. Juliana Hatfield Sings ELO is due out November 17 on American Laundromat Records, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Juliana Hatfield, check out the artist's website.
