What will it take to make people realize that the Swedish pop chameleon Robyn should be a star, and would probably give Katie Couric a much better pre-Grammy interview than the perpetual irritant Katy Perry? (Robyn’s self-titled full-length is, after all, nominated for Best Electronic/Dance Album against worthy foes like Kylie Minogue and Cyndi Lauper.) Well, we can all make our own efforts, but here’s hoping that The Cherrytree Sessions, a forthcoming EP with acoustic versions of some of her best tracks, will help this worthy cause. The version of her bad-boy ode “Bum Like You” from those sessions after the jump.
And just for purposes of comparison, here’s the original:
America! She understands you!
