Hi, meet Daniel Merriweather! Actually, I don't know that much about Daniel Merriweather. Other than the fact that he guested on an album by super-producer Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen) and sang an incredible version of The Smiths' "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before." Ronson signed him to his label and is putting out Merriweather's debut album, Love & War. I've heard that the album has been a bit problematic and has been delayed a few times.  I downloaded two songs from iTunes: a great duet with Adele "Water and a Flame," and a really great cover of The White Stripes' "You Don't Know What Love Is (You Just Do What You're Told)." So far I'm pretty sold on the guy.  It's pretty interesting that a band like The White Stripes, have been covered by pop/soul singers like Daniel, as well as Joss Stone ("Fell In Love With A Girl") and Kelly Clarkson (who sometimes covers "Seven Nation Army").
