While Jose Gonzalez has a strong body of original work, he is best known for his incredible anthology of covers. The singer-songwriter is in full promotional swing for his first solo album in almost eight years and recently stopped by a game show in his native Sweden to perform this folksy cover of TLC‘s “Waterfalls.”

Backed by fellow Swedes Augustifamiljen, Gonzalez strips down the original R&B tune. The tune is a departure from his electro-infused covers of The Knife’s “Heartbeats” and Massive Attack’s “Teardrop,” but a welcomed one. Watch the live cover below:

  1. Check out the Steve Poltz version from late 90’s. Much prefer that version, but this one is still good.

  2. I like this one better.
