Twin Shadow Tori cover

Lately, Twin Shadow main man George Lewis, Jr. has kicked off an online video series called UNDER THE CVRS, in which he posts himself singing other people’s songs. He’s already done 10cc’s “I’m Not In Love” and Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire.” Today, he posted another: A spare and florid take on “Silent All These Years,” the first quasi-hit that Tori Amos ever recorded. That’s just a heartstoppingly gorgeous song, and he takes it seriously and shows off a tenor that’s stronger than I realized. Watch it below.

I wrote about Amos’s debut album Little Earthquakes when it turned 20 last year.

  1. well that made me cry like a little bitch.

  2. that was good

  3. Man this guy’s on fire later. Except when he’s covering I’m on Fire.

  4. As a huge Tori fan, I feel a little weird having others cover her but Twin Shadow nailed it. It’s kind of refreshing to hear the song from a male’s perspective.
