Double J Music has just released their new compilation project Acoustic Covers: The Album! The twenty-track release features unique interpretations & reimagined takes on current hits like Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape Of You’ and The Chainsmokers’ ‘Paris’, alongside classics like ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ and ‘Hey Ya’.
The album showcases stripped-back, acoustic covers from a wide range of artists like Sleeping At Last’s mesmerizing version of Backstreet Boys’ ‘As Long As You Love Me’, which gained global attention after being featured on ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy. The band is a huge force in their own right, having also contributed to the Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn soundtrack. Alexa Goddard, who scored a deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label, contributes a sincere, unplugged version of James Arthur’s ‘Say You Won’t Let Go’. The album also includes Jennifer Ann’s haunting cover of ‘Mad World’, currently featured on the Lloyds Bank TV ad in the UK. Fresh music comes from John Adams who is fast becoming one of the UK’s most talked about singer-songwriters. Following recent support from Ashton Kutcher and BBC Radio 2, Adams reworks Nelly Furtado’s classic ‘I’m Like A Bird’ exclusively for the album. In addition, the collection includes Emma Heesters (the most recent winner of MTV’s Cover Of The Month, with 130 million votes), and an exclusive from social media star Rajiv Dhall (‘Starboy’).
Also known as ‘Listd’ on Spotify, Double J is UK-based record label & production company and one of the fastest growing playlist networks with over 60,000 followers. Double J Music founder James Kinnear says the chance to feature new interpretations on these hits by a diverse array of amazing artists made for a great collection. “What drew us to these songs is the way each of the artists transformed the originals into something completely fresh and new. To take a party track like ‘Cheerleader’, and turn it into a heartfelt piano ballad, that’s the basis of what makes this concept so special.” The album is already #1 in the singer-songwriter pre-order chart on iTunes. The album is available for download now!
