OneRepublic Covers Oasis

OneRepublic embraced their formative rock influences by covering Oasis’ 1995 anthem “Champagne Supernova.” (Listen here.) The alt-pop band’s reverent rendition, recorded at the iconic Abbey Road studios, highlights the London episode of “Music Happens Here,” Spotify’s music and travel series with Live Nation and Hilton Honors. Frontman Ryan Tedder adopts a slightly British phrasing on the track, opening up into a round, full-throated howl that resembles Oasis’ Liam Gallagher. His bandmates stay faithful to the original recording, supplying plenty of raw crash cymbals and distortion.
