Vancouver, Canada’s very own alt-rock sensation The Veer Union is back and bolder than ever. They’ve teamed up with label-mate Jody Black to deliver a stunning rendition of Billie Eilish’s haunting 2019 hit, “You Should See Me in a Crown.” The track was produced by the band’s lead vocalist, Crispin Earl, and directed by the talented Julien Bouffard. The revamped single takes the dark emotions of the original and injects it with new raw energy.
The band’s upcoming album, Covers Collection Vol.2, is slated for release on September 1, 2023, on Rock Shop Records.
The Veer Union’s decision to tackle Billie Eilish’s shadowy anthem presented a challenge they met head-on. In their words, “You Should See Me In A Crown” proved too unique to simply replicate. Which ultimately led them to create their own remarkable interpretation. The result is their heaviest release yet, showcasing their ability to reimagine a track while maintaining its emotional intensity.
Collaborating with fellow label mate Jody Black was a joy for the band, enriching the collaborative spirit that defines this rendition. It’s an experience they’ll forever treasure, as captured by the band’s frontman: “Collaborating with our good friend and label mate, Jody Black, was an absolute pleasure, and his contributions enriched the entire experience, making it a moment of collaborative unity that we will forever cherish.”
