Corinne Bailey Rae Returns With The Love EP (Out Now), Covers Bob Marley, Prince and More

Grammy-winning artist Corinne Bailey Rae returns with The Love EP (out now), a five-song collection of covers that she calls an “homage to some of my favorite musicians, as well as a conversation between some of my musical influences.”

The EP opens with a cover of Prince’s “I Wanna Be Your Lover,” followed by “Low Red Moon,” written by former Throwing Muses/Breeders singer Tanya Donelly for her band Belly. Bailey Rae also crafts unique takes on the 1978 Bob Marley classic “Is This Love” and “My Love,” a No. 1 hit by Paul McCartney & Wings. The EP closes with a live version of “Que Sera, Sera” (popularized by Doris Day and Sly Stone) — a song that Bailey Rae and her band have been closing shows with on her recent tour (check out the live video after the jump).

Corinne has recently been nominated for an NAACP Image Award for outstanding female artist alongside Mary J., Rihanna, Sade and Chrisette Michele. The awards will be given on March 4th.
