13 NOVEMBER 2020 (TORONTO, ON) – Today, Canadian singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist known as BAD CHILD shares a four-track Covers EP through 21 Entertainment and Universal Music Canada alongside Capitol Records stateside and Virgin Records in the UK. The EP features renditions of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun”, Bill Wither’s “Hope She’ll Be Happier” and Harry Style’s “To Be So Lonely” plus a brand-new cover of The Chamber Brother’s “Time Has Come Today.” Full EP track list below.
Coinciding with the release of the COVERS EP an animated hand-drawing visualizer for The Chamber Brother’s “Time Has Come Today” cover has been released today with drawings done by BAD CHILD.
On the EP, BAD CHILD comments “The COVERS EP is a reimagining of some of my favourites pieces of work from artists I admire greatly. ‘Black Hole Sun’ was a lullaby my mother would sing to when I was young. It’s a thank you and an homage to the artists who’ve helped me through so much.”
BAD CHILD’s eccentric music and unique vision landed him on the festival circuit last summer playing some of the world’s most prestigious line ups including; Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds and Osheaga. Earlier this year, BAD CHILD was gearing up to join grandson and NoMBe as support for concerts across North America. Both tours have been postponed in light of the global situation.
BAD CHILD is an artist looking to come to terms with his childhood and his upbringing. After losing his mother at a young age and dealing with heartbreak, he sought refuge from the world in music. Since then he's been breaking new ground with his genre bending and distinguished sound palette. Last year, he released his debut EP Sign Up and became one of Canada’s most exciting exports; profiled in Wonderland Magazine, Complex, HillyDilly, Sidewalk Hustle, Atwood Magazine and the Toronto Star. BAD CHILD’s original song “Candy”, featuring Ryan Chambers, was included on the soundtrack for the buzzed about Netflix film, To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You. Back in Canada, his first radio single “Breathing Fire” peaked within the top five on alternative radio plus he has been nominated for 2019 SOCAN Songwriting Prize alongside Dilly Dally, grandson and Kaytranda and was recently chosen as one of 33 artists selected for the Music Video Production (MVP) Project. BAD CHILD teamed up with fellow Canadians Justin Bieber, Geddy Lee, Avril Lavigne, Walk Off The Earth and many more on another Bill Withers cover of the classic “Lean On Me” as the broadcast event Stronger Together Tous Ensemble Sunday April 26. The cover was released following the show on all streaming platforms with all proceeds going to the Canadian Red Cross. Listen to the “Lean On Me” cover here.
