The Manic Street Preachers have recorded a cover of Rihanna’s “Umbrella” for an upcoming NME (New Musical Express) ride-along CD. Second only to “Crazy”, I know from my inbox that people are getting tired of hearing covers of this song, however, I’ve heard the Manics’ cover, and it’s a great interpretation – very reminiscent of their “If You Tolerate This, Then Your Children Will Be Next”.
But I’ll leave it up to you. Play it as the final nail in the “Umbrella” cover coffin? Or have you already had enough? Tell me, and your wish will be my command.
