Fresh Music: Leona Lewis Caught the Alt. Rock Bug On New Covers EP, ‘Hurt’

It’s a good day for music fans and fans of Ms. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Leona Lewis[/lastfm]. She has just released her new EP, titled Hurt, and you can hear the entire four song EP, featuring cover versions of Nine Inch Nails, Snow Patrol, Goo Goo Dolls and Counting Crows tracks right here!

Leona Lewis – “Hurt”

Leona kicks off the EP with a fantastic version of the NIN classic, “Hurt”. Honestly, I was never a fan of the Nine Inch Nails version, there was just something annoying that I could never seem to put my finger on. Then Johnny Cash came out with his own version, which was a little better, albeit a little too “country” for me.

Leona has hit the (nine inch) nail right on its head with her version! I’m especially feeling the end. MUCH appreciated, Leona!

Up next, “Iris”…

Leona Lewis – “Iris”

I’ve heard other bands attempt this song in the past and always thought the original by the Goo Goo Dolls couldn’t really be topped. It’s a perfect song, in my opinion. Well, Leona has taken the song to another level with her version.
