BASTILLE have released a new standalone track – a cover of Green Day’s Basket Case. Listen HERE.
The track will be featured on Amazon’s new superhero TV series The Tick, which will be available to stream on Amazon Prime from next Friday (August 25).
The band’s frontman Dan Smith says of the cover: “We’re massive Green Day fans and so tried to make a version of ‘Basket Case’ that was totally different to the original whilst still honouring what an awesome tune it is.”
“We had a lot of fun reinterpreting it with loads of strings and brass, inspired by countless film scores and ‘Eleanor Rigby’. To be able to work on something that combines superheroes, orchestras and Green Day was an absolute pleasure.”
