UPDATE - 10/16@1:00PM: The preview clip has been updated and is now the full clip. Check it out below or on SoundCloud.

Jacob Moon: FascinationCanadian folk musician Jacob Moon will soon be releasing a new CD titled Fascination which will include covers of Rush's Limelight and Subdivisions. The album is slated for release sometime next month and can now be pre-ordered via making a pledge at Kapipal or RocketHub. The album will also include covers of songs from Yes, Marillion, Radiohead and Peter Gabriel, along with two new original songs. Jacob recorded Limelight with the Alex Lifeson-produced David Barrett Trio and has posted a minute-and-a-half preview clip to Soundcloud which you can listen to below or at this link (thanks RushFanForever).

You can check out some in-studio footage where Jacob and David talk about The Trio's work with Alex Lifeson, the Limelight recording and more at this link. Jacob Moon garnered the attention of Rush and their fans when he posted a YouTube video of himself performing an impressive rooftop solo rendition of Rush's Subdivisions a few years ago. The video quickly went viral, and Rush later asked Jacob to perform the song at their Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony back in March of 2010.

Has anyone thought of listening to Jacob's original material?

He has written some great original songs, which I think are overlooked by RUSH fans.

I've seen him four times in concert, and everything is does is of excellence.

He's not just a cover artist.

UnstableCondition said it best... I couldn't really get into it much. I am interest in hearing some of Moon's other covers, though. I can imagine that remaking an iconic song would not be an easy task.

I struggled with the first 45seconds, but probably was due to my brain preprogrammed to hear limelight as I expect. But overall it developed into a good interpretation and on a second listen, think it is pretty good.

Was that you random?

Hey random_sample, I was referring to those who were more politically correct in stating how they didn't like the song or seemed indifferent to it. You liked it and said as much.

I still think its a weak effort and interpretation. 2 covers I like are Prince's Super Bowl version of the Foo Fighters song "Best of You"
link (Forward to 6:17).

and Johnny Cash's version of NIN's "Hurt".

I like it. It sounds great, and also it's not just cover - he does quite a lot different with it. Only heard it twice so far but it's a good'un.
