The Jaded Hearts Club today share the brand new video for their track ‘I Put A Spell On You’ taken from their debut album You’ve Always Been Here, which is out now.
The British rock supergroup are mining the history of rock and soul music to create original interpretations of lost classics, Northern soul cult hits and jazz standards.
‘I Put A Spell On You’ was originally released by Jalacy “Screamin’ Jay” Hawkins in 1956 and has been covered extensively by numerous acts as diverse as Nina Simone, Annie Lennox & Jeff Beck.
Listen to ‘I Put A Spell On You’ by The Jaded Hearts Club on the Official Fantasy Premier League playlist on Spotify.
The Jaded Hearts Club make this song their own by embracing the songs’ menancing undertones with a searing, unexpected and volatile guitar and vocal performance by Graham Coxon and Nic Cester respectively , backed by a heavy thumping jazz-metal rhythm section.
The Jaded Hearts Club are a new band featuring frontmen Nic (Jet) and Miles Kane (The Last Shadow Puppets), guitarists Graham (Blur) and Jamie Davis, plus Matt Bellamy (Muse) on bass and drummer Sean Payne (The Zutons).
The band were formed in 2017 when Jamie, a British guitarist living in Los Angeles who previously ran Coxon’s Transcopic Records label in England, wanted to book a Beatles covers band to play at his birthday party.
The cost proved to be excessive and the available tribute acts were drab, so Davis had a back-up plan. “I realised I knew a bunch of half decent British musician friends living in L.A. so I thought I’d ask if they’d come together to form an early ‘60s Cavern-era Beatles band.”
