ABSOLUTExclusive: William Beckett Song Premiere

Posted by - 12:12 PM on 03/19/13
This spring, Rock For Justice will be releasing Songs For Justice, a compilation in which all the proceeds will go to fight global poverty and social injustice via our partnership with Speak Up Productions. We are premiering the first song from the compilation - William Beckett's cover of "Come Pick Me Up," featuring some additional vocals from Cara Salimando. You can stream in the replies or at Will's AP.net profile. We've also included a teaser video about the project in the replies.

I haven't listened to enough of his solo stuff - he seems to have something new every couple months - but this is an enjoyable cover.

It's a good cause but it takes the emotion out of the Adams version. Also, really not feeling the faint midi horns in the chorus which are meant to replicate the banjo from the original.

Really strips it of everything Ryan Adams put into it and it's one of my favourite songs ever. Like someone said, good cause obviously, but really not a fan of the cover at all.

These two covered this song live together on tour before. Really cool to hear a studio version actually.

Same Casey Bates that did that incredible remix of Dont Trust Me by 3OH!3 for Take Action 9?
