Wilco Give A Mellow Take On Elvis Costello's '(What's So Funny Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding'

Rock veterans and the world's greatest 90s dad band Wilco just released their 'Spotify Singles' session, featuring a live version of Schmilco single "If I Ever Was A Child" plus a cover of "(What's So Funny Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding" by Elvis Costello and the Attractions. Recorded at Spotify's NYC studio as part of their ongoing 'Singles' series, the band took the explosive, tightly-wound punk classic and threw in a generous helping of their signature alt-country chill. Instead of the classic Costello setup of snarling vocals, explosive chords, and warbling keyboards, Jeff Tweedy and co. pull out jangly guitars, classic piano, and bring the tempo back to a soft, mid-tempo stomp. The overdriven guitar way back in the mix, courtesy of guitar virtuoso Nels Cline, gives the song a tiny bit of the original's punk spirit, but overall, Wilco's cover is still a more laid back and twang-y interpretation the Costello staple that'll please fans of both artists. Listen to the cover right here, along with the new version of "If I Ever Was A Child."
