Thief - "Cry Me A River" (Justin Timberlake Cover)
Thief has been taking a break after releasing his incredible debut EP, Closer, almost 8 months ago. That being said, he hasn't been completely idle, as earlier this week he released his cover of Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me A River". In this cover, Thief creates a unique sound (using steel drums and fat horns, among other things) that manages to keep the original song's emotions while playing to Thief's talents. I am the first to admit that I probably like JT's "Cry Me A River" more than I probably should, and even with that in mind I think this song is an absolute gem. Give it a listen.
