Frankie Rose, a former member of indie-pop groups Vivian Girls and Dum Dum Girls, has recorded a front-to-back cover of The Cure’s 1980 sophomore album Seventeen Seconds that will be made available next month to members of the Sounds Delicious vinyl subscription service.
You can get a taste of that project via Rose’s cover of “A Forest,” which is streaming below.
Of the song, Rose says in a news release announcing the Seventeen Seconds cover:
“This is my take on The Cure’s Seventeen Seconds. Since I already think it’s a perfect record, I tried not to reinterpret too much and stick to similar sounds as the original, but with a twist. Working on it with Jorge Elbrecht was a dream, because he’s the only person who’s as deep of a Cure fan as I am! And he’s a damn wizard!”
Rose’s version of Seventeen Seconds will be limited to 1,000 copies and will only be released on vinyl through Sounds Delicious. For $25 a month, members of the club will receive one full-length cover album each month that has been exclusively recorded for the service and won’t be released elsewhere.
