British nu-folk trio The Staves (Emily, Jessica, and Camilla Staveley-Taylor) take on the Fleetwood Mac Rumours-era standard "Songbird" and turn what was already a classic into something fresh and different. It's no secret that the late, great Eva Cassidy had pretty much put her own indelible (and exceptionally fine) stamp on the song years ago, but this new version, from the latest MOJO covers collection, has it's own straightforward charm with a simple production and some lovely three-part harmonies. Now where is the American release for The Staves' Dead and Born and Grown? For another track from Rumours Revisited, check out Julia Holter's interesting remake of "Gold Dust Woman" below...
