When I saw “No Ordinary Love” listed as a track on You + Me’s debut album rose ave. I hoped it was a cover of Sade’s 1992 hit. And, luckily, it was.
The duo, comprised of Pink and Dallas Green (aka City and Colour), delivered a bleak cover of the song atop a piano backing for their version, which they recently performed live in Santa Monica, California.
Obviously, it has nothing on the original, but the two singers’ voices blend well together. It’s quite beautiful.
It’s enough to make me miss The Civil Wars. You + Me sound good, but the new folk duo doesn’t have the chemistry that the now defunct group had. Their connection was palpable.
rose ave. is in stores now.
