Album artwork for Never Again by Black Country, New Road

Rough Trade Album Of The Year #4 Black Country New Road - For The First Time

Four covers from one of our favourite new bands. On the A-Side are two ABBA covers whilst on the flip covers of MGMT and Adele.

Words from the band

Mamma Mia - easily our favourite cover on the compilation. A tight and punchy rendition of a certified banger. It’s a song we all take for granted but when you go to cover it you realise how amazing every piece of the puzzle is. A joy to perform.

Chiquitita - an unintentionally haunting first take of a song that some may say didn’t need to be covered.

Time To Pretend - was recorded a day after we released the album. We were doing a live stream of some improvised music to celebrate the album’s release. Improv tends to be quite long winded and frequently pretty boring, so we thought that we’d start the set with a song that we all knew and loved. The song itself is fitting description of the lifestyles we have all since gone on to lead - to differing degrees of success.

Covering Someone Like You was a pretty natural decision for all of us. Though for some reason, the response to both the decision and subsequent cover were met by unanimous criticism from both friends and management alike. For us, it has been a sobering lesson on knowing how to put your foot down in favour of a creative decision in the face of overwhelming resistance.
