Song of the Day posts one cool cover every morning. Catch up on past installments here.
Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward have been promoting their She & Him album Volume Two pretty hard of late, but today’s cover hearkens back to their first acclaimed disc (you’ll never guess what it’s called). “Change Is Hard” is a typically sunny dose of beach-pop, perfect for the boombox or car (windows down, of course).
The Lexingtons cover “Change Is Hard” on their new album. This Rhode Island duo has been chugging along since 2007 and was nice enough to send this as a submission (moral to artists: submit your covers!). Lapping steel guitar and breezy guy-girl harmonies guide you gently down the boardwalk.
