Listen: Julia Holter covers Dionne Warwick’s “Don’t Make Me Over”

on June 17, 2014, 4:50pm

Julia Holter’s latest album, Loud City Song, was a stunningly pretty full-length of celestial pop, highlighting the songstress’ airy voice and classically-trained musicianship. Today, she returns with a new song, a cover of Dionne Warwick’s first single, “Don’t Make Me Over”, which was originally written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David in 1962.

Holter’s rendition gives the song an ethereal sheen, as her voice floats over an orchestral composition of upright bass, strings, and horns. It’s less grand than the big band sound of Warwick’s original, but it’s still just as lovely. Listen in below.

“Don’t Make Me Over” is on the forthcoming double A-side 7-inch release “Don’t Make Me Over” / “Hello Stranger”, which is out on July 28th via Domino Records. “Hello Stranger” is also a cover, of Barbara Lewis’ 1963 single. It originally appeared on Loud City Song.
