Arcade Fire Release“Baby Mine" Cover for Tim Burton's Upcoming "Dumbo"

Arcade Fire just released their cover of "Baby Mine" from the upcoming soundtrack for Tim Burton's "Dumbo"

Turns out their was a personal connection for the band:

“There is a scene with a locomotive in the original Dumbo that uses an instrument called the Sonovox that my grandpa Alvino Rey made famous in the 1930s. Every time I saw the film I thought it was him,” said Win Butler

“When we were asked to do the [‘Baby Mine’], I immediately got all of my grandfather’s old guitars and wanted to play them in the song. My mom plays the harp on the track, my brother the theremin, my wife [Chassagne] sings and plays drums, and our son even plays the triangle, as well as the rest of our ‘family’ in Arcade Fire. I will forever relate to the song thinking about the people I hold so dear that are ‘so precious to me.’ Listen for the cameo of my grandpa Alvino’s famous Sonovox at the end.”

Listen to their version below:

 

Here's the thing - Aurora also did a version of THIS song for THIS movie - and no disrespect intended (Arcade Fire are one of the best and most important bands of our generation) - I kinda think the Aurora version works better

Listen below

 

That said - NOTHING beats the original
