Here's the latest installment from A.V. Undercover, where bands come in and choose a song from a list and then perform their own rendition of it. This week's edition finds Swedish rock trio Peter, Bjorn and John covering “Try A Little Tenderness” from Otis Redding (the same track that Kanye and Hova sampled on Watch The Throne).

Peter talks about how Redding influenced him as a kid before the band tackle the classic soul number, and though they have no difficulty in converting it into a Peter, Bjorn and John song, it still maintains the swagger of the original, thanks particularly to Peter's intense vocals. Watch the clip below:
