REDD KROSS: When Do I Get To Sing ‘My Way’

BROOKLYN VEGAN: Redd Kross‘ upcoming album, Beyond the Door (August 28th, MERGE), closes with a cover of Sparks’ 1994 single, “When Do I Get to Sing ‘My Way,” which they transform from glittering synthpop disco into a triumphant rock anthem. It also comes with the creators’ approval. “Redd Kross has always been one of my favorite bands and that opinion was cemented when I heard their amazing version of our ‘When Do I Get To Sing ‘My Way,’” says Sparks’ Ron Mael. “To do a version of that song with a completely different musical approach from the original while keeping every ounce of the original sentiment was an amazing feat. I love it!” They play Underground Arts w/ The Melvins on October 12th.  MORE
