Matthew E. White and Flo Morrissey cover Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin Bout You” — listen

on January 12, 2017, 12:42pm

There are quite a few songs to look forward to on Gentlewoman, Ruby Manthe collaborative cover album coming from CoSigned indie rocker Matthew E. White and UK singer-songwriter Flo Morrissey. There’s their take on James Blake’s “Colour of Anything” or Leonard Cohen’s “Suzanne”, for example. But today, just one day before the album drops, perhaps one of the most intriguing remakes of all is being shared: Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin Bout You”.

White and Morrissey’s take on the Channel Orange track supplants the original’s smokey R&B with a bit of funky soul. Guitar flutters replace synth hums on the chorus as Morrissey takes over the vocals following White’s handling of the verses. Take a listen below.

Out January 13th, Gentlewoman, Ruby Man has been previously previewed with covers of Little Wings (“Look At What The Light Did”), the Bee Gees (“Grease”), Velvet Underground (“Sunday Morning”), and Nino Ferrer (“Looking For You”).
