This week, Toronto-based Cuff the Duke and their record label Paper Bag Records are close to wrapping up the hype and prep work on their upcoming fifth album release Morning Comes out February 28.Today, FILTER presents the fifth track off of the band's collection of covers found in their EP In Our Time. We present Cuff the Duke's very own cover of the John Lennon track "Instant Karma." As a familiar and loveable track, Cuff the Duke hit high strides with this one. Read a few words from the band below.
"There aren't many bands out there that aren't in some way influenced by The Beatles. They are also a pretty tough band to cover. Doing a John Lennon song seemed just as sacred but we also felt that Instant Karma was a song we all loved so much that we had to cover it. We decided out of the gate that we wanted to do a faithful version. Not really try to reinvent the song or anything. In our opinions, it's such a great song. If we did it any other way we would just sound bad and besides we really just enjoyed playing it like it is. " - Cuff the Duke
