The Civil Wars- I Want You Back

17 Sep

I love a cover song done well. While perusing track listings, I came across this cover of the Jackson 5 classic. The band is called the Civil Wars and they are more of a bluegrass/country group. What I love about this cover is that the re-working keeps the original melody but slowing down the tempo allows for it to be more bittersweet. Singer Joy Williams has an incredible, distinct voice and she does the song justice.
