5 O'Clock Shadow 3-14-13: Little Talks

Click to enlarge

Here's a Shadow that's hot off the press! Young and upcoming singer Cris Cab decided to cover Of Monsters & Men's summer 2012 smash hit "Little Talks" and he nailed it here.

I've said it once, and I'll say it again: The best covers are when an artist puts their own unique twist on a song. Here, Cab adds an electronic and worldly flair to the orignal folk-pop tune. It's almost difficult to recognize the song until that unmistakeable chorus.

Take a listen to both versions below and tune in to the 5 O'Clock Shadow weekdays at 5 p.m.
