The 25 Best Albums Of 2018
From 'High As Hope' to 'Bloom,' here's our list of the 25 best albums of 2018.

Beer commercials are not known for their moving soundtracks, but Budweiser throws the rule book out the window by calling on CLOVES for a stripped-back cover of “Blowin’ In The Wind.” The song is a key part of the brand’s Wind Never Felt Better Campaign, which celebrates their use of renewable electricity. This could have gone very wrong in less capable hands. However, the Aussie singer rises to the occasion. “As a songwriter I’ve always admired Bob Dylan’s ability to write songs that become timeless classics,” she explains.

“It was an absolute honor for me to cover this song. Bob Dylan is a true icon.” CLOVES wisely stays true to the original and lets her powerful pipes take center stage over a stripped-back arrangement. If this is your first introduction to the newcomer, be sure to check out One Big Nothing. It was one of my favorite albums of 2018 and deserved to find a much bigger audience than it did. Hopefully, her striking cover of “Blowin’ In The Wind” raises her profile in the industry. Listen below.
