Welcome to 2011. Shall we have a Villagers cover song to start off things? ‘Old Man’ is a Neil Young cover from his 1992 classic album Harvest.

It is taken from Mojo Magazine’s cover CD this month, Harvest Revisited which sees the likes of Phosphorescent and Sam Amidon among others offer their take on the album. Conor doesn’t sing quite as high as Young but you really don’t need him to. Listen to both below.
