Aloud Cover The Rolling Stones’ “Dead Flowers”
If the Rolling Stones had recorded their classic “Dead Flowers” in 1965 instead of 1971, it might go…a little something…like…this. As a chaser to their recent single, “Falling Out Of Love,” Aloud have released a great cover of the Stones song, along with a video. They’ve upped the beat and subtracted the twang of the original, and singer Jen de la Osa has gone in the opposite direction of Mick Jagger’s lazy drawl with a soulful belt. The Stones themselves released an alternate and more driving version of the song a few years ago, but it still retains the country vibe and the loose swing inherent to most early-’70s Stones music. Aloud’s version goes full mod and stomp, as you’ll hear below. (Check out the Stones’ alternate take at the bottom.) Aloud is currently working their way around the Northeast surrounding the debut of All These Small Things, which features some of their music. See dates here.
