Jamie Cullum has said that some of the artists he has covered are fans of his versions of their tracks.
The jazz singer told The Guardian that he has received some feedback for his covers of Radiohead’s ‘High And Dry’, Rihanna’s ‘Don’t Stop the Music’ and Pussycat Dolls’ ‘Don’t Cha’.
Cullum said: ‘Rihanna liked ‘Please Don’t Stop The Music’. Pussycat Dolls saw ‘Don’t Cha’ on YouTube and said, ‘Doesn’t he look cute?’.
“Radiohead’s Phil Selway said he’s glad someone is playing ‘High And Dry’ ‘cos they don’t. I’ve never met Jack White. Ten billion people must have covered ‘Seven Nation Army’.”
When asked if he would use his ‘stomp box’ as a lift to help kiss Sophie Dahl when the couple wed next year, Cullum said: “It’s a beautiful question but the stomp box is purely for making loud noises.
“It’s a bit of wood with a microphone inside. It’s not for any vertical improvement.”
