Macy Gray Releases Album Of Covers (AUDIO)

Smoky voiced Macy Gray released her newest album Covered on Monday. Expectedly, the majority of the album is covers, with remakes of a wide range of songs like Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters," Colbie Caillat's "Bubbly," and the Arcade Fire's "Wake Up."

A few sites, like Stereogum, have tracked down some of the tracks. Unfortunately, Gray doesn't really add anything to the songs, which is usually what makes a great cover. Her identifiable voice is really the only interesting part of the covers, which are essentially basic, radio edit-sounding versions of the originals.

Watch below for a live version of her cover of Arcade Fire's "Wake Up:"
