Check out KT Tunstall’s newly released cover of “I Won’t Back Down” featuring Mike on guitar and backing vocals with Thunderpussy’s Leah Julius on drums.  

KT and Mike chose “I Won’t Back Down” to honor Tom Petty and to shout support to people across the globe standing up for justice and equality to demand a better world.

Proceeds from “I Won’t Back Down” will go to the Vitalogy Foundation.

    Nice! Been a fan of KT Tunstall since I first saw her live solo performance on Later with Jools Holland back in 2004. This is awesome!

    This is great seen KT here in Dublin last year when she backed simple minds and in fact it was the night before Eddie Vedder played Dublin with Glen Hansard.

    I'm always skeptical about Tom Petty covers, but this was really good. It's refreshing when someone covers a song and brings something new to it.
