This version of ‘Photograph’, originally released in 2005 as the lead single from Nickelback’s fifth album ‘All The Right Reasons’, sees Melton take on every role in the band.
The video also pays homage to the original music video with a series of nostalgic images from the 2010’s appearing in a photo frame.
For pop punk fans, he’s performed both Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Belivin’ and Vanessa Carlton’s ‘A Thousand Miles’ in the style of Blink-182 and has also turned Lil Nas X’s ‘MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name)’ into something that would have sounded at home on the Warped Tour.

Earlier this year, it was confirmed that Nickelback are working on a new album. At the start of August, bassist Mike Kroeger (and brother of frontman Chad) revealed that the band were in the studio during an interview with Tulsa Music Stream
When the subject of a release date came up, Kroeger said “it’ll be done when it’s done”, explaining that he and band would rather not be confined to a timescale for fear of making “a shitty record”.
While there’s no set date, Kroeger did say that the band are booking a tour for next summer “so we’ll have to get some stuff squared away and out there to the people in advance of that.”
Earlier this year, Nickelback collaborated with a British group that turned the band’s song ‘Rockstar’ into a sea shanty.
