El Perro Del Mar – “Breaking The Girl” (Red Hot Chili Peppers Cover)

El Perro Del Mar, the project of Gothenberg indie-pop OG Sarah Assbring, has shared a cover of Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Blood Sugar Sex Magik track “Breaking The Girl.” On SoundCloud, Assbring explains that she recorded the track for 2012’s Pale Fire:

“Breaking The Girl” was recorded in 2012 for the album Pale Fire but was decided in the end not to be on it. It is one of my absolute favourite songs by Red Hot Chili Peppers. That and the funk bass theme I was after for Pale Fire made me want to cover it.

She adds this note on Facebook:

Here’s an early xmas gift for you!
I made my version of Red Hot Chili Pepper’s “Breaking The Girl” for my last album Pale Fire. It never made it onto the album but I thought it’d be nice as a giveaway for Xmas 2015.
We all need something sweet in these dark days don’t we?
Share it immensely ok!
with love, peace and a snowy landscape(in my mind),
S
