White Stripes cover Otis Redding’s “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long” | New Music


If Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s latest collaborative song, “Otis,” gave you Otis Redding fever, here’s a lovely gem we recently stumbled across. Whilst fans of the White Stripes would have been sad to hear that the duo have officially broken up, it’s got to be nice to still hear new releases from them. Here we have a cover of “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long,” originally by soul legend Otis Redding, and of course the lyrics are same but it has that White Stripes sound all over it. It’s almost strange to not hear the original, but it just goes to show what a little creativity can do with a classic song.
