The Jaded Hearts Club are a new band mining the history of rock and soul music to create original interpretations of lost classics, Northern soul cult hits and jazz standards. The band have shared their brand new video for ‘I Put A Spell On You’ ahead of their debut album release ‘You’ve Always Been Here’ .
‘I Put A Spell On You’was originally released by Jalacy “Screamin’ Jay” Hawkins in 1956 and has been covered extensively by numerous acts as diverse as Nina Simone, Annie Lennox & Jeff Beck. The Jaded Hearts Club make this song their own by embracing the songs’ menacing undertones with a searing, unexpected and volatile guitar and vocal performance by Graham Coxon and Nic Cester respectively, backed by a heavy thumping jazz-metal rhythm section.
‘I Put A Spell On You’ is accompanied by a 1960s Italian horror inspired video, shot in Italy by filmmakers OLO Creative farm, capturing a distorted black and white time-warp nightmare with Nic Cester as a cult leader brainwashing his disciples with mysterious voodoo spelts.
‘I Put A Spell On You’ is the latest track to preview the album after Northern soul banger ‘Love’s Gone Bad’, the life saving ‘Reach Out I’ll Be There’,Marving Gaye’s hidden gem ‘This Love Starved Heart of Mine (It’s Killing Me)’, boogaloo garage ‘Nobody But Me’ and the World War 2 Vera Lynn classic ‘We’ll Meet Again’.
