FMT was a commercial attempt to cover popular tracks in the style of DNA (remixers of Suzanne Vega's "Tom's Diner" amongst others). And so they did this cover of Paul Simon's "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover", which sounds pretty good actually. The vocals, sung here by a woman (Camilla), are creating a new hook while some other lyrics are spoken by a rapper. The result is much more darker/pessimist than the original Paul Simon version, but the treatment is working very well.
The second single from FMT was another cover, "Suzanne", originally performed by Leonard Cohen. But it failed to repeat the success of "50 Ways...", bringing the band to the status of one hit wonder.
