Listen to Crown Lands' cover of The Beatles' "Come Together" here, and below.
Crown Lands infuse the 1969 original with a jolt of their distinct style. Bowels chants the familiar lyrics over pummelling guitars and cascading drums creating palpable energy. Crown Lands describe, “We specifically recorded ‘Come Together’ for the purpose of a partnership opportunity and it has worked out beautifully, we’re honoured for the song to be a part of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™. There is no disputing the magic that The Beatles created together and it’s nice for us to have ‘Come Together’ to add our little twist to it. In other words, we cranked the vocals up an octave, added a metric-ton of Leslie guitars and threw in some fat Taurus synth bass bombs into an already great song.”
“Thanks to ongoing collaborations with TSN, when the opportunity to soundtrack a pivotal moment for Canadian sports came up, we knew Crown Lands had the ability to create something that would resonate with that energy and captivate fans," said JP Boucher, Senior Vice President, Marketing, at Universal Music Canada. “Crown Lands have consistently come to the table with powerful, sophisticated original music that’s deeply rooted in the past while evolving for the future and we’re proud to say they delivered with a track that will support Team Canada through the tournament.”
Crown Lands continue to introduce themselves to the rest of the world through their high energy live shows. This month, they join Greta Van Fleet on the final leg of their Dreams In Gold world tour as it wraps up in the US. Early next year, they will head out with fellow Canadian rock outfit, July Talk, playing iconic venues across their home country on The Never Remember Tour.
