Ted Leo Covers Robyn, Sade, Concrete Blonde


Ted Leo, whose forthcoming album, The Brutalist Bricks, is out on March 9th, posted three covers via his Twitter account. This is what he had to say about them under 140 characters:

This evenings toss-offs: 3 power ballads by women, inspired by @debenham's request for Robyn. Learn, play/record live, make into MP3s...

Ted Leo fuzzed-out and completely re-imagined Robyn's "With Every Heartbeat", Sade's "By Your Side", and Concrete Blonde's "Joey". Listen to the covers after the jump:
