‘American Idol’ Star Joey Cook Returns With Postmodern Jukebox (VIDEO)

American Idol star Joey Cook is no stranger to Postmodern Jukebox. Thankfully, she’s finally back for an all-new track with Scott Bradlee and the gang, and it’s a bit more funky and jazzy than the excellent “Say My Name” cover she did for her PMJ debut.

In the newest video, Joey teams with PMJ to tackle the Cage the Elephant hit “Ain’t No Rest For the Wicked”. However, this is done in a vintage jazz style, in keeping with Joey’s bluesy style. It works surprisingly well, considering the original is a laid back rock song that’s virtually tailor-made for drunken sing-alongs. Then again, maybe that’s why this works so well. It fits right into that bluesy, boozy, jazzy style that keeps the song as fun in this version as it is in the original. I loved the hell out of this, and I’m already on my third listen in fifteen minutes. Hopefully, you’ll dig it too.
