Sister act Lily And Madeleine share a fondness for “Sea Of Love,” which has previously been recorded by Del Shannon, Robert Plant’s Honeydrippers, Tom Waits and Cat Power.

“‘Sea of Love’ is one of our favorite songs to cover,” Madeleine tells us. “The lyrics and melody are so sweet! We’ve listened to many versions of the song and our favorites are by Cat Power and of course the original by Phil Phillips.”
