Rhoda Dakar covers Morrissey - "Everyday Is Like Sunday"

Just seen that the fantastically talented Rhoda Dakar, who has sang with The Specials and many more, is releasing a cover of Morrissey's Every Day Is Like Sunday.
Can only imagine the meltdown that will cause at Guardian HQ.

Sadly this cover features a twist, focusing on the mundane diner "specials" often served on the weekend.

hope the b-side is a dub version of it.
The vinyl looks so pretty. 👀
I'm seriously tempted to pre-order but I'm afraid I might not like it. I can't stand most covers of Morrissey or Smiths songs.

Btw, agree the vinyl does look pretty.

not a fan of that cover though, would have preferred a picture of her mimicking the original EDILS single sleeve.

Bit of background:

"RHODA: “During the first lockdown, trapped in my frontroom looking out over London, this song was my earworm. It never went away. Late summer 2020 we had the chance to get into the studio, in a socially distanced fashion. The track we recorded sounded good, very good and we smiled.“"

FWD.

I bought a copy - I'm technologically incompetent though, so I'll probably just have to tell you what it sounds like unless someone else posts it.

Has anyone heard this? I ask because there are those praising it, without knowing the content. Who knows what she's done with the song. She may have changed the lyrics - no one knows.

Nobody on here has been praising the cover version itself. All that was mentioned was Rhoda's talent in general and the look of the vinyl and cover design...

It will be released digitally in April too.
