We all know that cover songs aren’t rare, but few artists are able to make the song their own as much as out musician AG (Adrianne Gonzalez) has done with her cover of The Beatles classic, “I Wanna Be Your Man.” The rasp in her voice mixed with the slink of somewhat dark R&B soul adds a layer of sex appeal the original lacks. While the Fab Four’s rendition is upbeat and, no doubt, sung earnestly, this incredible cover adds a sense of longing and fragility to the words coming out of AG’s mouth — almost to the point of heartbreak.
We are honored to be given the exclusive premiere of the beautiful video made to accompany this cover. From concept to finished product, this is incredible work.
AG will be releasing an entire EP of Beatles cover songs on October 9, the same day as John Lennon’s birthday. You can keep up with Gonzalez at her website, on Twitter, Facebook and also check out her band, The Rescues, who are currently doing a PledgeMusic campaign to raise funds for their next album.
