KILLER COVERS || Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.: "We Almost Lost Detroit"
Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. covering Gil Scott-Heron? Yessir. Heron and Brian Jackson originally laid this one down back in 1977, and given that Jr. Jr. are also from the Motor City it seems a fitting song to cover in their inimitable indie soul style. There is a We Almost Lost Detroit EP coming out on Record Store Day but it's unclear what's intended to be on it. The song itself appears on their 2011 album It's a Corporate World which will be a year old in July.
