Watch Haim Sincerely Cover Sheryl Crow’s ‘Strong Enough’
Long-awaited 'Days Are Gone' debut LP due September 30 via Columbia
When classifying Haim’s particular blend of ’80s-pop chops and R&B swagger, several names have been invoked: Fleetwood Mac, Melissa Etheridge, Shania Twain. And now there’s another — Sheryl Crow. During a recent visit to Australian radio station Triple J, the Days Are Gone sister trio brought listeners back to the Tuesday Night Music Club by covering Crow’s 1995 hit single “Strong Enough.” Despite a few easy, ironic references to another Crow “jam” (2002’s “Soak Up the Sun”), the California natives come across as refreshingly sincere in their performance, complementing the country-tinged ballad with throaty vocals, meted out synths, and a modest guitar solo. “I forgot how good this song was,” Danielle Haim says at the beginning of the clip.
