C Duncan covers "Pearly-Dewdrops' Drops" by Cocteau Twins for new EP

15 January 2016, 13:00 | Written by Laurence Day

Mercury Prize-nominated singer/composer C Duncan is sharing his glorious cover of Cocteau Twins' "Pearly-Dewdrops' Drops" on Best Fit.

The track will feature on a new EP from the Glasgow-based artist which is released on 19 February via FatCat. It'll also feature three other unheard tracks: "A Year Or So", "Garden (BBC 6Music Session)", and "The Age for Love (Is the Wrong Age for Me)".

Duncan's "Pearly-Dewdrops' Drops" cover is a lush, fantastical outing - he's made it very much his own while paying homage to the original's untameable melodies.

Duncan released his debut record Architect last year on FatCat.
