It is very rare we actually listen to covers of songs, but sometimes it’s surprising how good some of them turn out to be. A cover gives a new edge to a song, even when you’re bored to death with the original thanks to repeatedly hearing it on the radio. All Time Low are one of those who usually nail this thing.
Most recently, they’ve covered Sia’s “Elastic Heart” for BBC Radio1 Live Lounge. It was so dreamy, we’re still not over it.
Pretty sure when Rihanna was all over the radio with “Umbrella”, it was the same time fetus-ATL started to become what it is today, and they’ve exploded among the scene.
“True Colors” by Cyndi Lauper was recorded for a various artists release from Hopeless Records. Mixing this 80’s hit with modern rock gave the track a great twist. We hope Cyndi approved, as well.
Personally, Britney Spears has never been a big favorite, but the guys killed it on this one back in 2011. It actually turned out to be almost heavier than any of their originals.
Our ‘future hearts’ are open for many more amazing covers to come, and huge congratulations to All Time Low on their first ever Number One position on the UK and US album charts!
