Colton Ford covers R.E.M.’s alternative rock hit “Losing My Religion” and shows off his hunkster bod in the above video directed by Carl Byrd. From Ford's second full-length album, UNDER THE COVERS, “Losing My Religion” is one of many songs on the album - all made famous by someone else. Other songs include Fleetwood Mac's 32-year-old "Dreams" (the oldest song on the album), Babyface’s R&B charttopper “It’s no Crime," Robyn’s “With Every Heartbeat,” Sade’s “By Your Side,” Alicia Keys’ “No One” and Nirvana’s “Lithium,” among others.
Having made a considerable impact when they were originally released, all of the tracks on UNDER THE COVERS will seem wholly familiar to their listening audience, yet wonderfully fresh. Explains Ford, “Adding my interpretation to these songs gives a new perspective to these classic tunes, enabling me to show different sides of my vocal ability.” WATCH THE VIDEO (above).
