DUSTIN TEBBUTT X LISA MITCHELL – ‘INNERBLOOM’ (RUFUS COVER)
I’ve wanted to do a cover of ‘Innerbloom’ for a while now, it’s my favourite tune off RÜFÜS / RÜFÜS DU SOL‘s last record. When Lisa and I were talking about doing a cover together we had a bunch of more traditional singer songwriter songs on the list, but this one really stood out as a bit of a challenge and we thought we could do something special with it. I love how adding that second vocal kinda puts a new slant on the story too.
We often use the word ‘songs’ when describing pop or folk, and tend to lean more to ‘tracks’ the closer we get to the electronic end of the spectrum, but for me Innerbloom is the perfect sweet spot between both. The writing here is flawless and the journey in the original version is really spectacular. Hopefully we’ve done it some justice in this version!
