Stunning Cover Work: Skye - Feel Good Inc.

Skye, if that name rang a bell to you, used to be the vocalist for trip-hop/electronica band Morcheeba. She left the band to pursue a solo career, and her debut album is a quite good collection of relaxing, chill-out electronic pop song. I came across this cover yesterday and I just immediately fell in love with it. It's just one of those things that you know are gonna be great even before listening. One day she visited KCRW radio station, they asked her to do a cover, and she just reacted impromptuly and chose this song to sing. The whole thing was just done so artfully, I had never viewed the song in such an angle before. Laidback, delicate acoustic guitar arrangements, and Skye's sweet, breathy, light voice just perfectly goes with the melodies. This song will just fit well with the rest of the tracks on her debut solo album 'Mind How You Go'. This is just one of those things that you have to hear to believe it. She completely transformed the song into a coffee-table afternoon chill-out. Utterly beautiful work.
I included here a previously posted mp3 of her debut single 'Love Show', which is also a gorgeous song, in case you want to know more of her.
This cover I ripped from the KCRW podcast, and there's only 2 minutes of it (stop right before the 'Shake it' rap), so I'm not sure if this is the full version or not, because nowhere else can I find it available. If there is a longer version and you happen to have it, please email me! In the meantime, check out the goodness! Highly recommended!
