Courtney Love "Take Me to the River" (Al Green cover)
Published Feb 10, 2015As previously reported, Courtney Love is appearing on the latest season of Empire as an over-the-hill diva. She will be on tomorrow night's episode (February 11), in which she will perform a cover of Al Green's classic soul tune "Take Me to the River." For now, the song can be streamed on Spotify ahead of time.
This cover remains true to the original song's horn-blasted soul vibe. Of course, this is the Hole singer we're talking about, so it's not too much of a surprise that she boosts it up with distorted electric guitars and raw, husky vocals.
