Hear Future Teens' Soft and Sweet Cover of "I Don't Want to Get Over You" Originally by The Magnetic Fields

When The Magnetic Fields originally released 69 Love Songs in 1999 it was an eclectic compilation of love songs which enlisted use of all sorts of different genres and stylings. The album’s discussions encompassed various facets and laments of love, and ultimately served as a grand reflection on love. Now, almost 20 years later various artists will offer room for the same reflection on independent record label, Living Statue Records’, forthcoming cover-compilation rendition of the album. We have your first listen of “I Don’t Want to Get Over You” from the album, covered by Boston, MA’s Future Teens. A bit slowed down, softer, and sweeter than the original: Future Teens’ cover breaths a new, gentle acoustic life into the track while impeccably maintaining the song’s original heartfelt intent.
