My Morning Jacket, Florence & the Machines Cover Holly

Spin.com has the latest track from the upcoming tribute album Rave on Buddy Holly, due out June 28. Click here to stream My Morning Jacket’s cover of Holly’s slow jam “True Love Ways.”

Florence and the Machine have also posted a  black-and-white video for their New Orleans brass band take on Holly’s ”Not Fade Away.” Outfitted in Day of the Dead regalia, Florence Welch conjures a soulful rendition of Holly’s 1957 hit in the new music video below. Produced by Louisiana native C.C. Adcock and recorded in New Orleans last year in the midst of Florence and the Machine’s North American tour, the cover is also part of a forthcoming 19-track tribute album, which commemorates the late musician’s 75th birthday.

“When I was 10 my grandmother took me to see the Buddy Holly musical and I’ve had a crush on him ever since. And now my boyfriend looks slightly like him!” Welch is quoted as saying on nowness.com.
