How To Dress Well – “Again” (Janet Jackson Cover)

%name How To Dress Well   Again (Janet Jackson Cover)

Total Loss is on its way, and it seems everything How To Dress Well drops before that 9/18 release date just heightens the anticipation. Today, he announced international tour dates for this fall and with those, a cover of Janet Jackson’s 1993 hit “Again.” It sounds exactly like a How To Dress Well cover of Janet Jackson should; hushed and sparse, but strikingly earnest. The extremely stripped down arrangement only helps the song as, with just a few elements, the extremely strong songwriting of the original still stands out in a new environment.
