Austra – Crying (Roy Orbison Cover) [Listen]

There is a trend lately with albums getting the Deluxe Edition treatment, one being Austra‘s “Feel It Break“, which drops today.
This album has received critical acclaim, and was on the shortlist for the Polaris Music Prize 2011.
I was surprised to find out that “Crying” had made the Deluxe Edition.

Why? Before Austra was formed, it was just Katie Stelmanis.
If you look on Youtube, there are some live videos of her singing that cover.
All I can say is that it is one haunting cover she has pulled off.
It’s not a dancey track, but more of a soft, moody track.

Here are two videos from the Paper Bag Records Sessions.
