Had to make sure I shared this song with you (and thanks to listener Jason, who shared it with me). It’s a former bandmate of Pete Yorn, named WAZ, and his excellent and unique version of U2’s “I Will Follow”

I spoke with WAZ last week about putting the track onto Coverville, and while he was all for it, his lawyer was forced to say no. Why? Because Universal Music Group, U2’s label has denied him permission to release this version. However, they were all OK with me linking to it in on the site, as well as to WAZ’ MySpace page.

Listen to the cover, and also sample some of his excellent original music.
