My Convictions Could Not Lie

Next week Tony-winning artist Duncan Sheik is releasing an album of 80s covers including tunes from The Smiths, Depeche Mode, The Cure, etc. Not usually a fan of covers albums, but Nada Surf changed that all for me with last year's stellar If I Had a Hi-Fi. Should be interesting to hear what Sheik does with these dark synthy classics.

Check out his cover of New Order's Love Vigilante here.

Updated:The album was released today. Download it(iTunes).
