Whether it’s to launch a new artist, to gain “street cred” or to show off your eclectic music interest/influence, it seems like covers are becoming a thing these days.
From huge pop stars (Miley Cyrus) to movie stars (Johnny Depp), here are five of Obsessed’s favorite covers this week.
Who wouldn’t trust something coming from the lips of New Zealand’s youngest queen of songwriters? Changing an auto tune-centric Kayne West track to a breezy powerful storm is something only Lorde is capable of.
Ryan Adams & Johnny Depp seem an almost impossible match up but their cover of Danzig’s “Mother” is so spot on it’s mind blowing.
Despite the almost necessary hate that much of the public feels forced to harbor when Miley Cyrus does anything; even the hairiest of trolls are a little flabbergasted by her enraged but vocally impressive cover of Led Zepplin’s “Baby I’m Gonna Leave You.”
These different musicians formed a super group in Montreal after a fundraiser event. This conglomeration of talent provides your sensed with a sublime cover of Phil Collins, “In The Air.”
Last but certainly not least is the always beautiful and often ridiculed Katy Perry with her cover of MGMT’s “Electric Feel.” Her groovy spin on such an iconic tune never leaves the melody, but rather gives the song new life.
