(Sandy) Alex G released his latest album, House Of Sugar, about a month ago, and the Philadelphia musician is about to go on an extensive tour in support of it. He recently stopped by the SiriusXMU studios, where he played a new cover of Shania Twain’s “You’re Still The One.” He offers up a pinched-nerve take on one of the Canadian country musician’s biggest hits.
Twain had a bit of a rough go of it last year. After saying that she would’ve voted for Trump in an interview, she had to backtrack and apologize. She still got some hefty co-signs last year despite that, with covers from Kacey Musgraves and Harry Styles and HAIM. Alex G’s biggest claim to political fame so far is being mistaken for Beto O’Rourke.
