Or, The Whale get "Toxic" by covering Britney

It's not too often that you hear of an artist wanting to cover the immaculate Britney Spears, yet, here I sit telling you about a new cover song of "Toxic," Britney Spears' 2003 Grammy Award winning song.

The band is Or, The Whale, who have released the track as a one off cover. Most recently, the band released their second album, (self-titled) in 2009. With some nice tours already behind them, they've lined up a few dates for March leading into SXSW.

In the meantime, here's their version of "Toxic"
