Tuesday night, the fourth season of the biker melodrama Sons Of Anarchy debuted on FX, and the episode featured the Kills/Dead Weather singer Alison Mosshart covering the wide-eyed standard “What A Wonderful World.” Mosshart’s version is a calm, stripped-back take with none of her usual snarl. The Forest Rangers, the band led by Sons of Anarchy composer Bob Thiele, backed her up and kept things somber and acoustic. Listen below.
I haven’t seen that Sons Of Anarchy episode yet, but I’m guessing it used the song in some sort of ironic way. That’s just the kind of show Sons is.
