The music may have died one fateful and tragic night in February 1959, but Rave On Buddy Holly, a 19-song collection of Buddy Holly covers done by modern artists, ensures that the music lives on in 2011!
The covers set is due out on June 28th via Fantasy/Concord Records in honor of Holly's 75th birthday. The album will feature Florence + the Machine covering "Not Fade Away"; The Black Keys offering up "Dearest"; Modest Mouse tackling "That'll Be the Day"; and Cee Lo Green crooning on "Baby, You're So Square." Paul McCartney covers "It's So Easy" and Lou Reed makes a go of "Peggy Sue."
