A new Deftones album is coming out this September, which means time for me is going to go very, very slowly for the next 4 months. Fortunately, I have all their other music to remind me of why I’m excited in the first place.
Apart from their own original songs, Deftones are famous for their impeccable covers of artists that don’t quite fit into the Hard Rock genre. The one that stands out the most? This stunning cover of a Sade classic. It doesn’t sound anything like a Deftones song, but it’s got their beautiful and dark undertones, without moving too far away from the original.
And Chino’s vocals? Well, let’s just say that you’re going to find it difficult to listen to the original after this.
