Like its streaming rivals, Deezer is experimenting with commissioning original music that won’t put labels’ noses out of joint.
The latest example is a compilation album called ‘InVersions‘, which is a collection of cover versions by 10 independent artists.
Fontaines DC, Arlo Parks, Dream Wife, Alfie Templeman and Chloe Moriondo are among the artists chosen – the latter with a very on-trend cover of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dreams’.
Standards by the Beach Boys, Robyn, Bruce Springsteen, Amy Winehouse and Sinéad O’Connor are among the songs covered, and the album has been released through the Deezer Originals program.
It follows the established covers programs of Spotify and Amazon Music.
