On the heels of a summer tour of the U.S. with Big Dipper and Conquistador, Portland Indie musician Logan Lynn has just released an epic cover of "We Can't Stop" (by Miley Cyrus) that is going to blow your mind.
Produced by Gino Mari, who also produced Lynn's 2012 release "Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks", the "We Can't Stop" cover features Lynn with a completely organic instrumentation unlike anything else he has recorded to date. "I thought what Miley did on the VMAs was hilarious," Lynn said, "I mean...Robin Thicke is a misogynistic pig, but that's not Miley's fault. She's just young and awkward and having fun. I would have totally Twerked on him and everyone else in my way at her age. Going nuts and telling authority figures to go screw themselves is part of growing up. Also, where do I get one of those giant foam fingers she had for that performance? Is that a sports thing?"
According to Lynn, this cover (and his latest single, "Everything You Touch Turns To Gold", released 8/13) are a glimpse into the new direction he and his collaborators are headed sonically. "I have to keep changing things up or I get bored. This round I've put down the dance music a little and Gino has been playing all kinds of instruments instead. It's been turning out really warm and special so far as a result. I figured this cold, dead pop song was the perfect thing to try and bring to life. I actually like Miley's version, too...but it's not particularly warm." Lynn and Mari are currently back in the studio writing and recording what will be Lynn's 8th studio album.
