For the final edition of the series, Soccer Mommy has covered The Cars’ classic ‘Drive’, while SASAMI has shared a version of System Of A Down classic ‘Toxicity’.
“I’m really glad to get to release this cover of drive,” Sophie Allison, aka Soccer Mommy, says. “It’s a song I’ve loved for a long time that I started covering pretty recently. It was nice to get to record one last thing in the studio before everything shut down.”
Listen to both covers below.
Earlier in the Singles Series, Soccer Mommy teamed up with MGMT singer Andrew VanWyngarden, where Allison covered MGMT’s ‘Indie Rokkers’ while VanWyngarden, under his new Gentle Dom moniker, remixed Soccer Mommy’s ‘Circle The Drain’.
Earlier collaborations in the series included team-ups with both Jay Som and Beabadoobee.
Soccer Mommy released her second album, ‘color theory’, in February. NME called the album a “stunning three-part album” that’s “as beautiful as it is brave”.
The singer recently had to reschedule her UK tour dates behind the album to 2021 – see the full list of new dates below.
