G. Love on CNN

G. Love is strumming his guitar, stomping his foot and clearly having a good time belting out the lyrics to "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover."

"This is my 11th record, and I've never released cover songs on any recording," confides the Boston-based singer-songwriter.

The 1975 Paul Simon tune is just one of several new renditions of some old favorites peppered through G. Love's -- aka Garrett Dutton's -- new album, "Fixin' to Die." There's also a cover of the Velvet Underground's "Pale Blue Eyes" and a couple of time-honored blues tunes, including the title track by the late Mississippi bluesman Bukka White.
