Revive Audio: Robert Glasper Transforms Radiohead’s “Reckoner” On New ‘Covered’ Single + International Tour Dates

Robert Glasper Brings All That Jazz To Radiohead's "Reckoner" On New 'Covered' Single + International Tour Dates

Robert Glasper is gearing up to drop his eighth studio album Covered, flaunting an uncanny ability to take his favorite cuts and morph them into something jazzy and familiar. And while he’s proven this musical super power time and time again on both Black Radio and its sequel, today we’re getting a taste of the project that perfectly embodies that transformative prism. The first offering from Covered landed this morning in the form of a stripped-bare take on Radiohead‘s In Rainbows standout “Reckoner,” replacing the six-string of the original with his trademark ivory touches and keeping things fairly straightforward for an RGT treatment. But wait, there’s more. Glasper, bass-man Vicente Archer and drummer Damion Reid will be taking their show to road on a massive intercontinental sprint this summer, the dates for which are listed below. You can jump over to Revive for more info on the album, just be sure to put your ears to this smooth reworking of Radiohead’s “Reckoner” below and keep you eyes to the sky for the next joint to drop. Preorder The Robert Glasper Trio’s Covered LP ahead of its June 16th drop on iTunes today.
