Twin Shadow's unpredictable Under the Cvrs series continues with a welcome return to '90s R&B. Ex-Bad Boy quartet 112 are paid tribute with this stirring cover of their 1995 hit "Cupid." Seen above, the man born George Lewis Jr. delivers a huskier take on the yearning track, adding a warbling electronic beat and a wobbly guitar solo. We've previously heard the man's takes on U2's "With or Without You," Lou Reed's "Perfect Day," Tori Amos' "Silent All These Years," Bruce Springsteen's "I'm on Fire," and 10cc's "Not in Love." Revisit the original "Cupid" below.
