This Sunday's playlist is brought to you by the handsome Tom Winser all the way from London, take it away Tom!

Hi guys, for this Sunday's playlist, I've kept it strictly laid back and scoped out 13 beautifully reworked aural sensations for you to wake up to. With so many dreary copies of commercial pop filling the airwaves, it's easy to feel disenchanted when we hear the mention of 'Covers'. But, for many artists, covering another artist's music is a great mark of respect. For us, the listener, it can also be a wonderful opportunity. Done properly, covers can breath new life into a song, bridging gaps between genres and generations and bringing new meaning to the lyrics.


1.  Hate to Say I Told You So - (Mrs. Bishop) The Hives

2.  I Can't Make You Love Me - (Bonnie Raitt) Bon Iver

3.  Dearest - (Buddy Holiday) The Black Keys

4.  Higher Love - (Steve Winwood) James Vincent McMorrow

5.  Georgia On My Mind - (Ray Charles) Maverick Sabre

6.  Halo - (Beyonce) Florence and the Machine

10. Only Girl in the World - (Rhianna) Ellie Goulding

11. Will You Still Love ME Tomorrow? - (The Shirelles) Amy Winehouse
