Cover version

In popular music, a cover version, cover song, remake, revival, or simply cover, is a new performance or recording by a musician other than the original performer or composer of the song. Originally, it referred to a version of a song released around the same time as the original in order to compete with it. Now, it refers to any subsequent version performed after the original.

Jimi Hendrix's cover of "All Along the Watchtower" was a bigger hit than Bob Dylan's original version.
