We're heading back to Gwyneth Paltrow's startlingly good version of "This Woman's Work" for today's cover primarily because it's one of those out-of-left-field surprises that, once we heard it once, we keep going back. Thanks to some singing roles in a couple films (Duets, Country Strong, even TV's Glee) we knew Paltrow, the wife of Coldplay's Chris Martin, had some vocal chops. We'd even heard that she's had a couple of label deals in the works over the years, most recently a country-ish album for Atlantic after Country Strong that ended up falling apart. But for now the we've got this lovely Kate Bush song from the now sadly out-of-print charity album Every Mother Counts, Volume 1 released a few years back.
