Todd cover more than just a Rumer

UK singer-songwriter Rumer http://www.rumer.co.uk/ ( Sarah Joyce) releases her second album next month – a set of covers of less-obvious songs by male artists. Rumer said: ‘this project is about passion, and paying respect to other people’s work. I went on a journey and this music tells that story.’ Included is a version of Todd's Be Nice to Me, off the Runt album.

Rumer is an amazing singer/songwriter, but it's fun to hear her cover other writers' material, too. I can't wait for this CD!

I think Jules Shear did that same song on his covers album.
