I swear to shit, 2011 is the year of the ‘Higher Love’ cover and everybody is just killing it. Yes, fellow music bloggers raging against that phrase, I just fucking said killing it. DEAL. In other news, I’m enormously stoked about this Winwood related development. Think about it…

Also see Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr cover Winwood below. Fucking Winwood is the shit.
Dudes, you all knew I would like this. WHY DIDN”T YOU FUCKING TELL ME SO.
Thing is, I’ve seen McMorrow’s name thrown around and because I’m an asshole, I purposely avoided it because every-fucking-body was yakking about it and just like Katy Perry, it must be shit. And look what happens. I accidentally click, I accidentally listen, and good Lord if this isn’t just kicking my ass. You’re gonna read about it elsewhere and get the ‘Irish Bon Iver’ bit and while McMorrow is undoubtedly similar, this is different. But I suppose peeps might be right: the feeling is there. The same feeling I get when I listen to Wolves. It’s there. Can’t explain it. Won’t try.
Provided you’re one of the seven people in the United States of Commercialized Pop Suckage who hasn’t heard this jam, listen below.
