Watch Patrick Stump Cover Jeff Buckley's "Everybody Here Wants You"
On October 18 Patrick Stump will release his solo debut Soul Punk (Island), a fantastic, hooky pop-soul record, full of choruses that soar into the stratosphere and crystalline lyrics. The Fall Out Boy lead singer plays every instrument on the record, and the album lays bare his appreciation for both the Jam/Lewis R&B aesthetic and the sort of arena-ready crunch that defined his band's most recent output. As a sort of pre-emptive bonus track, we have a premiere of Stump covering Jeff Buckley's "Everybody Here Wants You" one-man-band style; this version both shows off his formidable falsetto and that possesses the heart-tugging soulfulness of Scritti Politti's "The 'Sweetest Girl'." Clip below.
Stump goes on the road with Panic! At The Disco and Foxy Shazam next week; the tour hits the Paramount, the newly minted venue in Huntington, on October 30. More dates below.
