Arranger Scott Bradlee of ‘Postmodern Jukebox’ has teamed up with the Tee Tones to create a retro-style ‘Timber’ cover that just might be catchier than the original. The country-infused collaboration between Pitbull and Ke$ha has been dominating the radio since its October release, becoming a guilty pleasure for many. Now, you can enjoy the infectious tune with a surprising 50s-style flair.
Of course, the lyrical content (“twerkin in their bras and thongs -- timber!”) sounds a little funny with the jazz accompaniment, but that’s all the more reason to love it.
Postmodern Jukebox pride themselves for providing an “alternate history of pop music.” Their previous covers include vintage-sounding arrangements of popular songs by artists such as One Direction and Miley Cyrus.
