Marcus Collins releases his debut album on March 12, and ahead of that he’ll be putting out his debut single – a cover of The White Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army’.
It’s not a straight-forward replication of the original as such, rather a Marcusified version with a bigger brass section and lots, lots more vocal acrobatics.
But they pivotal question: Is it good?
The short answer is it’s not terrible. When the chorus really hits its stride, the production sounds great – but the rest, like the Zutons/Mark Ronson’s ‘Valerie’, will maybe only sound better once it’s been played enough to be separated from the original.
