Watch Band of Horses Cover Cee-Lo

Text

Last July, Cee-Lo Green covered Band of Horses’ “No One’s Gonna Love You,” and the band recently returned the favor at Austin City Limits, putting their own spin on Cee-Lo’s “Georgia” from the upcoming album The Lady Killer.

The two covers are available as a split 7” or a digital download, which you can pick up here. “This began as a very random idea I had on my dad’s patio after we watched our beloved Georgia Bulldog football team get robbed of a win at the hands of the referees and LSU last year,” singer Ben Bridwell wrote on the site. “I knew I wanted to pay homage to my favorite team in song but didn’t have any idea how to begin. Once I heard Cee Lo’s ‘Georgia,’ I was immediately smitten and figured that’s as good as any tribute to any state I’ve ever heard.”
