Worthy > Pixie Lott – ‘Use Somebody’ (Kings Of Leon Cover)

July 8, 2009

One of my favourite Kings Of Leon songs with an acoustic spin on it..

After catching a glimpse of the video for Pixie Lott‘s debut single ‘Mama Do‘ – which seems to be popular on the radio too (I’ve starting listening again here and there during car journeys) – a couple of weeks ago and being taken by the song and her potential, I last night went on a hunt for info about this girl with the unusual name.

Firstly I found that Pixie started off as a family nickname and Victoria is actually the 18 year old’s first name, and that she’s been at this since at least the age of 14. Behind the scenes she’s been travelling back and forth to LA – working with big names and meeting with the likes of L.A Reid, and attended a prestigious acting and singing school in London. She’s now signed with Mercury Records for the UK and Interscope [for the US market] with her album set to be released in September. I watched interviews with her too and she seems a genuinely down to earth girl. Not to mention extremely talented. Really hope the labels handle her well and she gets the chance to go far.

    Agreed. Came across Pixie’s version months ago. Golden! I almost hate that I like it more than the original as true KOL fan. But feel less guilty now that their fan site has recognized it!
