The undisputed king of delivering covers that are both personal and elegant in equal measure (take As Time Goes By in 1999 and The Jazz Age in 2012), Bryan Ferry is back with an EP in which he pays tribute to all his favourite love songs. It opens with the haunting Love Letters, which was originally written by jazz and soul singer Ketty Lester—who was also known for playing the role of Hester-Sue Terhune in Little House on the Prairie. Maintaining the same subtly modernised sound, it continues with a tribute to one of his favourite duos, Burt Bacharach and Hal David, who wrote the track I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself (popularised by Dusty Springfield in 1964). The former Roxy Music frontman delivers an incredible interpretation of this classic song that’s draped in melancholy and nostalgia. This almost ghostly EP concludes with a jump through time: Fooled Around And Fell In Love written by Elvin Bishop in the 1970s and The Very Thought Of You, a jazz classic first recorded in 1934. The latter is without doubt the highlight of Love Letters and is sure to remind some listeners of These Foolish Things, a track originating from the Tin Pan Alley collective that Bryan Ferry uncovered in 1973. By mixing retro sounds with a modern touch (something he even manages to do with his vocals), he’s really cemented his place as one of the most original and creative cover artists. ©Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

J.J. Cale: Big Brother o' Blues

More than eight years after his death, there is still no getting away from the vital wellspring of music that is the works of J.J. Cale. With his unique alloy of blues, folk, country and jazz, the man worshipped by Clapton, who lived for a while in a trailer, is still one of rock's most influential hermits.

Jack White, The Saviour of Rock

From the White Stripes to his time in the solo wilderness, Jack White has been foretelling the doom of a clapped-out rock'n'roll. The genius with a thousand projects has a new prophecy: rock is coming back. While we await its return, here's a look back at the White phenomenon.

Grunge in 10 Albums

Around thirty years ago, Seattle became the epicenter of the rock scene, largely thanks to grunge music. The grungy, ‘I don’t care’ attitude rose from the ashes of punk, heavy metal and alt-rock, and instantaneously went from an underground movement to a worldwide success. Perhaps too quickly embraced by the very system it rebuffed, it almost became a caricature of itself by the end of the 1990s. Let’s look back at ten albums that defined the genre.
