MP3: School of Seven Bells – “How to Love” (Lil Wayne Cover)
Yes, you read that correctly. New York dream-pop duo School of Seven Bells have offered up their cover of Lil Wayne’s “How to Love”, a track from the rapper’s recent album ‘Tha Carter IV’.
In what seems like a bit of a twist on the traditional approach taken by the likes of Nina Gordon (a folky, acoustic take on NWA’s “Straight Outta Compton”) or more recently Karmin with their cover of Chris Brown’s “Look at Me Now”, School of Seven Bells have transformed Lil Wayne’s cheesy acoustic track into a drum-heavy yet ethereal haze. You can stream the track below, or click through to the Soundcloud page for the download.
