Song of the Day: Alex Turner – “Strange”

I’m sure you know by now that a new Arctic Monkeys album is on the way, which will surely contain plenty of great new rock music. But sometimes it’s nice to listen to Monkeys frontman Alex Turner when it’s just him an acoustic guitar. This striking cover of Patsy Cline’s “Strange” was performed a few years back on Triple J radio. It seems to have been a work in progress at the time as Turner gets to the end of the song only to say “Never really figured out an ending.” If you like what you hear and want to hear more acoustic Alex Turner, check out his solo work on the soundtrack for the movie Submarine. Good stuff there.
