Mac DeMarco has recorded a cover of Eric Clapton’s 1996 song ‘Change The World’. Click below to listen.
As pointed out by DIY, the track will appear on a forthcoming cassette compilation released by The Editorial Magazine. The collection will also include songs by Blood Orange, Blue Hawaii and Candles, among others.
‘Change The World’ was first recorded by country artist Wynonna Judd for her 1996 album ‘Revelations’. Clapton’s version appeared on the soundtrack of the John Travolta-starring fantasy movie Phenomenon, and went on to scoop three gongs at the 1997 Grammy Awards.
DeMarco is currently streaming his new eight-track mini-LP via NPR. The singer-songwriter will release ‘Another One’ on August 7. It follows on from 2014 LP ‘Salad Days’, NME’s Number Two album of last year.
“It’s all love songs this time,” DeMarco told NPR. “It’s just kind of like every angle of how somebody might feel if they’re having strange feelings in their chest.”
DeMarco has been busy as of late. Just last month he dropped a nine-track instrumental album called ‘Some Other Ones’.
