Levi’s Pioneer Sessions: Colbie Caillat

Dear Levi’s, good work! I am so infatuated with this collaborative music series, it is a brilliant marketing initiative. Your awesome and diverse choice of artists to work with is breathtaking and brilliant! Thank you, that is all.

This week we get Colbie Caillat, covering the legendary Deborah Harry as she sings one of Blondie’s most popular and iconic song “Maria”. At this point I am hoping I do not need to convince any of you of the 0emmense value of this series. Watch the “making of” video below, along with the series tracklisting, and if you want to download the song directly to your iPod/phone click here to go to the site.
