Listen to Frankie Rose Cover The Damned

Frankie Rose

Ghostly and sexy…

 By Blurt Staff

 This was an unexpected treat this week – Frankie Rose unveiled an arresting cover of the Damned’s “Street Of Dreams” from her upcoming Fat Possum album Herein Wild. Check it out, along with the first single from the album, “Sorrow”:

“Street Of Dreams” comes weeks after the first track, “Sorrow”, was revealed to fans on and praised by a diverse range of critics. Billboard, who recently did an interview on Rose, lauded “Sorrow”, noting that it “presents some unexpected sonic treats, including a string arrangement that bulks up the track’s emotional impact and a roaring outro that rewards patience.” SPIN remarked that Rose “expands on her New Wave-y pop leanings, turning in an upbeat, string-enhanced performance with just a hint of Broadcast in the mix.” Stereogum went on to compare the song to “David Lynch’s idea of coffeehouse folk.”
