Little Red Riding Hood

Greetings from Liverpool, England!

We are well into our Europe jaunt, and minus a few van and gear kinks, things are going wonderfully.

A while back I was asked to record a cover of the song “Hey there Little Red Riding Hood” for a Volvo commercial. The commercial started airing this week and I think it’s pretty damn cute.

Little Red Riding Hood

Stay tuned. Barsuk is going to release a full version of the cover soon. I never though I’d cover a Sam Sham and the Pharaohs song but it was so fun! Perhaps I should record Wooly Bully next.

Cheers,
lg.

    Where can I get this whole song?

  2. Ashlee Marlow says:

    I just watched the Volvo commercial and IMMEDIATELY googled and this was the first result. I LOVED the original song when I was little, and you’re version is amazing too!

  3. Angelo Tarver says:

    I absolutly love your cover of this song. It’s driven me insane trying to find it so I could buy it. You have an awesome voice. I can’t wait until I can download it on iTunes. Thank you!

  4. Dave says:

    Yes please make the full version available. I love this!

    Tantalizing, sultry, gritty. Your fantastic voice gives new life to this song and it couldnt have been put to vision better than that commercial (sort of humorous but more bad ass).

    I too am waiting patiently for this to pop up on itunes or some other place where I can claim it. (Did I say patiently waiting? I meant pulling my hair out having to watch that commercial over and over just to hear the song.)

  6. Mark J. Wagner says:

    Very nice! The commercial is quite cute. I’m very happy that you’ve had such an opportunity.

  7. Jaime says:

    I can’t wait to hear the full version! As soon as I heard it on the commercial I tried to find it.
    I think it would be a perfect song for an episode on the TV show, Grimm. (Also filmed in Portland, OR)

    I, too, just watched the commercial and must say, that snippet of your cover sounds fantastic. I would love to hear it in its entirety.

  11. Terry L says:

    I can’t wait for the full release. You have great voice, like Norah Jones or Cat Power. All the best to you.

    Are you allowed to release it, or was it WFH and we should all petition Volvo to release the whole track? :-)
