A New Orleans Blues Version of “Don’t Look Back In Anger,” ft. Maiya Sykes

In honor of the beginning of our UK #pmjtour, we brought the incredible Maiya Sykes to help us transform Oasis’ “Don’t Look Back In Anger” into a Bessie Smith – style New Orleans blues.  Watch:

Maiya once again shows why she is one of PMJ’s premier vocalists; like the great blues and soul vocalists of the past, every note she sings is imbued with passion. This song was a perfect showcase for Maiya’s work with PMJ: the lyrical, mournful quality of the chorus melody really comes through when her voice is combined with the dirge-y New Orleans accompaniment.  This one is also especially fitting, given that Postmodern Jukebox is playing Manchester – Oasis’ hometown – on March 3.

Happy #PMJDay!
