Indie rockers Grandaddy have shared a new release called 2020’s Over Covers, which sees them releasing their own versions of Belle And Sebastian’s “The Fox In The Snow” and Beach Boys’ “In My Room.”
Grandaddy take the tracks and turn them into softer, slower renditions than the originals, as frontman Jason Lytle’s piano and vocals take the lead.
“I’ve loved this Belle & Sebastian song for ages,” Lytle explains of “The Fox In The Snow.” “I had to slow it down and tame the ‘bounce’ that it had though. I wanted it sweeter and sadder. That’s how I hear it: sweet and sad.”

“For anyone who claims introversion as a primary characteristic and has found themselves in some sort of career that requires communicating in public, this Beach Boys song is yours,” Lytle explains of “In My Room.” “Also, scarily fitting for just being anyone out there in the year 2020.”
