Dashboard Confessional have released a surprise new EP of cover songs.
The band’s frontman Chris Carrabba said of the song choices: “I love covering great songs by great artists. These are some songs I feel very connected to right now. Enough so that I felt I had a way of making them my own in some small way.”

Ed Sheeran recently said that he gave mega-hit ‘Love Yourself’ to Justin Bieber because it “wouldn’t have made it” onto his new album.
Speaking during a recent radio interview, Sheeran said of ‘Love Yourself’: “That was a song I had written for [my new album] ‘÷’. It just wouldn’t have made it. And then Justin took it and did his thing on it, and released it as a single and made it what it is.”
He continued: “So going from a song that would have never been released to [being] the biggest song of last year – it just became Billboard‘s #1 of 2016 of the whole year, and [was] nominated for Song of the Year at the Grammys – it just shows you that you shouldn’t always write stuff off.”
