Out today is ‘Punk Goes Pop Vol. 7′. Previous tracks released from the compilation have included The Amity Affliction’s re-imagining of The Weeknd’s ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ which was added to rotation on triple j earlier this month, Dance Gavin Dance’s take on Bruno Mars’ catchy number ‘That’s What I Like’, which has already racked up over half a million plays on YouTube and State Champs taking on the Shawn Mendez favourite ‘Stitches’ which was released overnight.
Punk Goes Pop’s seventh incarnation comprises a stellar track listing with further covers from the likes of Australia’s very own Eat Your Heart Out, New Years Day, as well as rising stars such as Boston Manor, Seaway and Too Close To Touch taking on pop juggernauts Twenty One Pilots, Drake, James Bay, Drake and more. It’s a diverse and exciting clutch of new renditions that will no doubt become firm favourites within the genre.
