Frank Ocean took to Tumblr earlier this year to break his silence and announce a new album to be released this July. We now have a pleasant surprise to hold us over until he drops the album.
To catch us all by surprise, Major Lazer has utilized MØ's vocal abilities to cover Frank Ocean's “Lost,” and it works perfectly. The infectious singer MO took the world by storm and inspired countless remixes of her song "Don't Wanna Dance,” and continues to impress as she pays respect to the original on this cover. Diplo brought his A game on this irresistible instrumental to bring a new light to Frank’s hit as he’s reimagined the song as a Major Lazer style reggae, summertime jam.

There is little known about up and coming LA artist Gallant, apart from the fact that he is the first label mate with ZHU on Mind of a Genius. He’s been making some serious waves with new breakout singles “Open Up” and “Talking In Your Sleep,” and now he’s back at it with a cover of Foo Fighter’s popular classic “Learn To Fly.” Gallant really makes the song his own by reimagining and recreating the tune with soft, minimal production. He even sings with higher notes than the original; his incredibly soulful vocals making for a uniquely beautiful cover that sounds very different from the original. Keep an eye on this rising artist and enjoy!

The always amazing Feed Me has done it again, surprising us this time with a rendition of Caribou's 'Back Home'. The UK Producer quoted on his Soundcloud saying “I have loved Caribou's music for a long time so I sang and produced this my own way for fun.”
A departure from his usual high energy style, Feed Me takes the original tracks more upbeat and light sound and twists in his own flare making it more dark and eerie. His signature synths are present and when layered over the drum pattern paired with his own vocals really make this quite an amazing cover. This reminds us of his also 2011 cover remix of Two Door Cinema club's "What You Know" and is hopefully a sign of more covers to come from Feed Me. Stream the song only for now and check back for a release or free download. Enjoy
