First off, Happy New Year to you and yours. It feels like a new start this time around, doesn’t it? I have been speaking about hope and optimism recently, so how appropriate is it that a video of Peter Gabriel’s “Don’t Give Up” pops up this morning from Canadian group Midway State, with Lady GaGa in tow. LG is everywhere, isn’t she?
“Don’t Give Up” has actually been floating around since mid-2009, but the video just leaked yesterday. It is very bare-bones, and holds to the same concept from the original video that Gabriel made with duet partner Kate Bush. Despite the low budget video, the cover is actually pretty strong on its own. According to a video post on their website, Midway State is going to be working on a new album in 2010. GaGa, on the other hand, will continue her efforts toward complete world domination. Stay tuned…

[Update: looks like the performance video has been yanked, so here is the audio clip instead.]
