Wildly eclectic pop-R&B singer Macy Gray hasn't been on top of the music world for over a decade, but on her sixth studio album, she continues to make it known that she won't go away quietly, if at all. Covered, which was released in the U.S. March 27, 2012, is a collection of remakes of rock, pop and indie music songs, by Macy, but with each being transformed to the point that they bear little resemblance to the originals. The concept may seem like a transparent bid by an aging artist to create a buzz and remain relevant, a la Johnny Cash's American Recordings projects, but Covered actually turns out to be much more than that. It's obvious by listening to the album that this is a labor of love, and that Macy handpicked the songs herself and for her own reasons. And that level of personal investment makes the album shine brighter than it would have otherwise. For more, click the link to check out the full review of Macy Gray's Covered.
