Stefan Alexander – Don’t Speak (No Doubt Cover)

After a three year hiatus, Stefan Alexander returns with a choice cover of a 90’s classic. No Doubt’s “Don’t Speak” is a testament to the decade’s brooding alt-rock scene, but the NYC singer-songwriter updates it for contemporary ears with a unmistakably current touch.

Moody synths set the tone before a tempered bassline begins to swell, but it’s the vocal interpretation that sets this spin apart. As vulnerable as Gwen Stefani’s original take, Alexander adds a layer of exposed masculinity to enhance the moment in this breakup anthem.

An altogether mighty homage, stream below, grab a copy courtesy of BKLYN Records, and spread that social love:
