St. Paul and the Broken Bones have released their take on the Radiohead song “Lucky”.

The song, from the classic 1997 album OK Computer, was posted to St. Paul’s official Instagram page on Tuesday. This marks the first studio output for St. Paul and the Broken Bones since their 2018 album, Young Sick Camellia.

In the song, which is accompanied by original artwork from Browan Lollar who also provides guitar on the track, St. Paul and the Broken Bones deliver their own spin on the dreary tune. The band picks up the tempo a bit and gives it some of their indie interpretation, with some more refined acoustic and electric guitars. Singer Paul Janeway puts his trademark soul flair into a song that could use a bit of a pick-me-up. While one might not think of St. Paul and the Broken Bones and Radiohead overlapping in any reasonable Venn diagram of music, the resulting cover of “Lucky” is a welcomed kind of different. In the original post with the song, the band said that this is only the first in a series where they will cover other songs they “love.” Hopefully, they continue to surprise listeners with more unexpected covers going forward.

St. Paul and the Broken Bones were scheduled to be out on tour this month, but have been forced to cancel and postpone shows due to COVID-19. Their two-night run at Tipitina’s in New Orleans April 30th–May 1st has not been officially canceled yet, but given New Orleans mayor LaToya Cantell‘s recommendation that no large events take place in the city until 2021, it is likely just a matter of time before those shows are canceled. Stay tuned to the band’s website for any announcements and future releases.
