Natalie Prass is a ridiculously talented songwriter who also happens to be ridiculously good at covering great songs of yesteryear. When I saw Prass perform at Outside Lands, she covered Janet Jackson’s “Any Time, Any Place” and a little while ago we were graced with her version of Slayer’s “Raining Blood.” The Nashville-based musician will release a new EP next week that features three covers as well as live renditions of “My Baby Don’t Understand Me” and “Christy.” Prass’ self-titled debut is a massive, orchestrally arranged work that sounds different (but still great) when it’s stripped-down for a live audience, so Live At Spacebomb Studios will definitely be worth listening to. We’ve already heard Prass’ cover of Anita Baker’s “Caught Up In The Rapture,” and today she’s sharing her version of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound Of Silence.” We’re still waiting to hear the third cover, a re-working of Grimes’ “REALiTi.” Check out “The Sound Of Silence” below.
Side By Side is out 11/20 via StarTime International. Read our recent interview with Prass here.
