Real Estate – “Behind That Locked Door” (George Harrison Cover)

By Miles Bowe / February 28, 2014

Real Estate are getting ready to put out their third album, Atlas, but right before that happens they’ve issued a very fitting cover for us. The song is George Harrison’s “Behind That Locked Door” off his triple post-Beatles breakup album All Things Must Pass. It’s an excellent cover because it’s a song that suits Real Estate’s easy going majesty so well, and fits the slightly more existential tone of their new album. This all brings to mind another band they’ve taken a lot of influence from, Galaxie 500, who ended their best album On Fire with a cover of the most famous All Things track, “Isn’t It A Pity.” Listen to Real Estate’s cover, which they performed for Sirius XMU, and the original below.
