Covered is the sixth studio album by American recording artist Macy Gray, released on March 26, 2012 by 429 Records. Because of the profanities in some covers, such as "Creep", "Teenagers" and the skit "Really", this is Gray's first album to officially bear a Parental Advisory warning, though a clean version was also issued. Gray appeared on Conan to promote the album.

1. Here Comes the Rain Again Lyrics. Covered is American R&B singer Macy Gray’s sixth album. It consists of covers of popular songs, in addition to interludes which feature performers including JB Smoove and Nicole Scherzinger. The album dabbles in many different styles, including ‘60s girl-pop ( Maps, originally a rock song by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs), hip-hop ( Love Lockdown/Buck, a mashup of songs originally by Kanye West and Nina Simone, respectively) and orchestral pop ( Creep, originally by Radiohead)
Covered (CDr, Album, Promo, Wat).
Macy Gray may have laboured diligently over these cover versions, but what comes across most is nonchalant disinterest, as she moans over sepulchral organ on "Creep" and staggers alienated through "Here Comes the Rain Again". The best track here is Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters" treated as a lilting electric piano waltz. But overall: must try harder. Or appear to. Download: Nothing Else Matters; Wake Up. We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view.
Macy Gray has won a Grammy, cracked the Top 5 on the Hot 100 and has steadily released music over the past 15 years, but she was still surprised when Booker T. Jones, one of the founders of the legendary Stax band Booker T. and the MG's, agreed to work with her on her new album, The Way. Gray's latest full-length hits stores next Tuesday (Oct. 7), but you can hear the Gray/Jones collaboration "First Time (Revised)" - and the rest of the LP - exclusively on Billboard.
