Grizzly Bear have finally released their gorgeous “While You Wait For The Other,” and amazingly enough, Michael McDonald can be heard covering the song on the B-side. You can’t help but smile when you hear McDonald’s deep baritone voice hit the track singing.
If Michael McDonald was going to cover a Grizzly Bear track, “While You Wait For The Others” would be the one. The cover is nearly identical to the original, but McDonald throws in his signature blue-eyed soul howls, kicking ass and taking names. A great listen, sure, but it really misses the spot Grizzly Bear’s version hits so well. Listen to the cover here or get it on iTunes, or order the 7″.
