This isn’t the most timely of posts but this two-week old cover of Foo Fighters’ 1999 hit by LA r’n’b artiste Gallant is a rework of the rock track that deserves a mention. Gallant’s version is unlike the literal, humorous original version that’s embedded in our minds despite its yrical content.┬áThis cover fully addresses the emotional aspect of the Foo song with its new arrangements that incorporate a gentle gospel choir vocal and a grounding, rumbling drum that obviously provides a heightened contrast within the two-minute track. However, just as how Gallant is singing about “lear[ning] to fly high,” the determination can be clearly heard in the precisely honed high-pitched note near the end.
