Dave Grohl broke his leg last week and had to cancel a bunch of shows. Given the spate of recent great Foo Fighters covers though, maybe he should have just turned those dates into tribute concerts. Tessa Rose Jackson’s amazing version of the “The Pretender” might work for a quieter midpoint, but a tribute show should definitely kick off with Los Angeles R&B singer Gallant performing his storming new cover of “Learn to Fly.”
With more than a touch of The Weeknd (who himself is no stranger to killer covers), “Learn to Fly” features thudding percussion, gospel builds, and stacks of gorgeous falsettos. Listen below. (via Nerdist)
