Brooklyn’s Fort Lean have already planned out their 2015 with the recent announcement of their debut LP, Quiet Day, out early next year via Ooh La La Records. With the announcement, they unveiled the excellent lead single “Cut To The Chase” (found below). In addition to their new original music, they have also found time to cover Otis Redding’s absolute classic “That’s How Strong My Love Is” as a part of a series that features “songs we love, some of which will be familiar and others that are lost gems.” Keenan from the band says of the song, “It’s one of the first songs I ever learned. I’ve been playing it for many years and it still almost makes me cry.” We must say, we were skeptical when first being presented with cover, but they more than do it justice capturing the devastating emotion vocally and instrumentally of the orignal. Watch and listen below.
