It’s not often we’re sent a cover—let alone a cover of Young Thug—that we find ourselves blown away. In this instance, however, something caught our attention, something that can’t quite be put into words—literally. As you may have noticed, we haven’t included an artist in the title above, and while you might think that’s an oversight, there’s a very specific reason for that: there isn’t one. Although we’re fortunate enough to premiere this wonderful little cover for you today, we ourselves have been left in the dark.
When one thinks of Young Thug’s green-minded anthem, “Stoner,” the word “rock” does not often come to mind. But for the purposes of this cover, we’ve been told to scrap our preconceptions. The song, which you’ll find above, is a striking combination of hip-hop and rock that boasts some seriously dynamic interplay between the piano, drums, guitar and flute of all things. So while the band behind the shadows has yet to be determined, we are sure of one thing: these boys know how to make a first impression!
(Editor’s Note: We’ve been told that the band and label will release more details over the coming months. Pay attention to this space for more information on that.)
