Tokyo Police Club have embarked on an incredibly ambitious cover project they are calling “10 Songs, 10 Days, 10 Hours, 10 Years.” According to Entertainment Weekly, each day for the next 10 days, the band will go into Red Bull Studios in Los Angeles and rehearse/record a cover of a song from the past decade in 10 hours. There will be one cover song from each year of the past 10 years, getting kicked off with a cover of Moby’s “Southside” which features guest vocals by Morgan Kibby of M83. Their cover song from 2002 that got released today is of Jimmy Eat World’s “Sweetness” featuring Michael Angelakos of Passion Pit fame.
The whole thing is being sponsored and documented by Polaroid, who is taking some nostalgic shots of the rehearsing and recording process. Stay up to date with the whole project at the official website and the Facebook page.
