I had received a note from my friend Caitlin a few weeks back. She was working on a super secret project for her man Zack for Valentine’s Day. She wanted to get several covers done of their song, “I Can Change” by LCD Soundsystem.
I was honoured and delighted that she asked me to be apart of her gift to Zack.
I had heard the song several times before and saw LCD Soundsystem at ACL in 2010. But there is nothing like recording a song to find what James Murphy and LCD Soundsystem went through to capture that moment.
Recording a cover song is always interesting.
As an artist, you want to have your own interpretation of the track. But when you record a track that you respect or love, you find out a number of things about the artist.
As a listener, I took for granted a number of things in this song.
With that, I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day. More than anything, share love and grace!
