Longtime Underoath drummer/The Almost frontman Aaron Gillespie has a pretty interesting taste in music. Starting out in one of the more influential post-hardcore bands of all time then quickly shifting gears to his sort of southern rock sounding side-project, Gillespie proved his musical tastes tend to vary. Then, just last year, the multi-talented musician decided to release a Christian rock record – his second actually, titled Grace Through The Wandering.
Now, fast-forward to 2016 continuing to follow his own path, Gillespie will be dropping a new LP called Out Of The Badlands which will be his first venture into an all acoustic album and will include a few re-imagined tracks by Underoath and The Almost. In order to promote his forthcoming release – which will hit stores August 19 – Gillespie has just premiered his cover of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer/guitarist Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me.”
To check out the pretty heart-wrenching rendition, which according to Gillespie helped him recover from his recent divorce, be sure to look below. Afterwards, pre-orders for Gillespie’s new album can be found here.
