Back in 2020, the rapper/rocker delivered a series of cover songs recorded while the world was in self-isolation due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Some of the songs MGK has covered as part of his #LockDownSessions included Nirvana‘s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’, The Beatles‘ ‘Here Comes the Sun’, John Mayer‘s ‘Waiting On The World To Change’, and KiD CuDi‘s ‘Pursuit of Happiness’.
Today (March 2), he’s dropped off a trio of tracks from the sessions including ‘Roll The Windows Up’, which pays homage to Mike Posner’s ‘Smoke and Drive’; ‘Pretty Toxic Revolver’, which samples Shawn Mendes‘ ‘Mercy’; and a PVRIS mash-up, ‘In These Walls (My House)’.
“It’s been two years since ‘lockdown sessions’ hit youtube, finally time to upload on streaming platforms,” MGK tweeted, announcing the EP. “All this in celebration of Mainstream Sellout coming 3.25.2022.”
