Wild Pink have released a new EP called Six Cover Songs. The record features frontman John Ross and drummer Dan Keegan’s takes on music by Taylor Swift, Bruce Springsteen, Carly Rae Jepsen, Shane MacGowan, and Coldplay, as well as a rendition of the iconic Jeopardy! theme. Listen to the full EP below.

Of his cover choices, John Ross said in a press release:

“We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” is by far my favorite Taylor Swift song though “Favorite Colour” is just one of a few personal favs from Carly Rae Jepsen. Her album E•MO•TION is full of incredible songs and choosing “Favorite Colour” was a tough choice. “Lonesome Highway” is one of my favorite Shane MacGowan songs of all time. It’s such a tender and sweet song and very impactful with his unique delivery. I love the music video for this song and need the Pittsburgh Penguins jersey he’s got on in it. He has the most heartbroken face I’ve ever seen at the end of the video where everyone is singing “I love you so”… just an incredible song that I had a blast playing. “Reign of Love” is one of my favorites from Coldplay. It was kind of a hidden song from Viva la Vida but probably the best tune from that album. “When You’re Alone” is definitely one of my favorite Bruce tunes from one of my favorite Bruce albums: Tunnel of Love.

Wild Pink released their latest album A Billion Little Lights earlier this year. It followed their 2018 LP Yolk in the Fur.
