Maddy Prior & The Girls - Under the Covers (England 2005) - @VBR~256

What do Shania Twain, Chrissie Hynde, Keane, Sting and Sinead O’Connor all have in common? They are all artists that appear on ‘Under the Covers’. Maddy Prior, Abbie Lathe and Claudia Gibson harmonize their way through some well-known compositions. Maddy’s wonderful, accompanied by two other fantastic singers, reinterprets the material, demonstrating that the gap between folk and mainstream music is not as large as some may think.
Maddy explains: “We set off on this project with certain ideas in mind, but as I have discovered over the years, projects tend to have their own agendas and will defeat your best endeavours. So we end here with a completely different outcome from that expected- two discs instead of one.” CD 1 Under the Covers is more or less the album the trio intended to make- a selection of songs from the musical mainstream they love to sing, while the second, shorter CD entitled Pensive maintains a more reflective mood.
