Regina Spektor – “No Surprises” (Radiohead cover)

from stereogum

On March 23rd, NYC’s Irving Plaza hosted a Doctors Without Borders benefit concert to raise funds for victims of the earthquakes in Haiti and Chile. Regina played there, and today doubles down on her relief efforts by releasing this cover of Radiohead’s OK Computer wishful thinker “No Surprises,” blogging “i LOVE them, and thank them for donating their proceeds too!!! they are the best!” So yes, this is a 100% charitable contribution to the canon of Radiohead covers we helped flesh out with our OKX compilation. Regina goes solo, arranging Thom’s utopian daydream for piano and voice, melting it to its core  and keeping it fairly affect free, to great effect. Have a listen, then please buy:
