Telling the story: @EMutemusic’s cover of “Love Will Tear Us Apart”

E-MUTE, “Love Will Tear Us Apart”

Following up his recent release I Can Pay For It, UK-based singer/pianist/drummer E-Mute delivers his cover of Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart”.  And before you start shaking your head, muttering “why”, and so on, do give this piano-driven rendition a few listens.  E-Mute presents this as a classic story, perhaps a bit theatrical in a few vocal inflections, but nonetheless perfectly suited to the anguished, tortured soul of the song.  There is absolutely no vocal like Ian Curtis’ original, and I’ve heard some terrible covers over the years.  But E-Mute has it in the bag – purchase it on Bandcamp right here.
