Elmore Magazine Premieres ‘I Hope That I Don’t Fall In Love With You’

elmoreEXCLUSIVE: Daphne Lee Martin Covers Tom Waits – Listen

Daphne Lee Martin, Tom Waits, You Say Trouble I Say Fun tour

As a part of her series of cover song singles, Daphne Lee Martin is releasing her version of the Tom Waits classic “I Hope That I Don’t Fall In Love With You” and Elmore has the exclusive premiere.

The song (the original of which first appeared on Waits’ debut album, Closing Time) centers on Martin’s smoky, mournful vocals, accompanied by a reverb-drenched piano and some spare synth strings. It is true to the spirit, if not the instrumentation, of the original, which is perhaps one of the most explicitly romantic songs in Waits’ large, diverse catalog.

Check out the track below, and catch Martin on her You Say Trouble I Say Fun tour through March 23.
