The Dangerous Summer Covers Miley Cyrus' “We Can't Stop”
American rock band The Dangerous Summer, consisting of AJ Perdomo (vocals/bass), Josh Withenshaw (rhythm guitar) and Christian Zawacki (drums), released a cover of American singer-songwriter Miley Cyrus' “We Can't Stop” on December 15, 2023.
The song is the sixth single off of Rude Records' “Changing Tides” charity compilation, a project under the Rude Cares wing.
"Changing Tides" is a collection of acoustic covers by the talented artists from Rude Records roster.
This project is a partnership born out of a deep commitment to the preservation of our oceans and its precious wildlife.
100% of collected funds with the distribution of the cover songs will go to Sea Shepherd.
The original version of the song was released by Miley Cyrus from her fourth studio album “Bangerz” in 2013.
The song reached No. 1 on the UK Singles chart and NO. 2 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
The track was written by Mike L. Williams II, Pierre Ramon Slaughter, Timothy Thomas, Theron Thomas, Miley Cyrus, Douglas Davis, and Ricky Walters. The cover version was produced by Will Beasley.
- The band lead singer AJ Perdomo said of the song, “It is an honor to take part in Changing Tides, a great way to give back to a charity that is doing great work. The Dangerous Summer has never done a cover before, so when I think of a great cover, I need to change it completely. I want to bring a song into The Dangerous Summer universe, and make it have the same heart as we have. I also love to make something that surprises people, and then gives a completely new perspective to a song that may be overlooked by our fans. We Can't Stop is one of the most incredible songs, and definitely a club banger.”
He continued,“ When you peel back the layers of the track though, you really see the incredible amount of emotion in the song. In my thoughts, I feel like this is Miley Cyrus' Fuck Them All. It is a punk rock anthem about freedom and life, and about taking control of your own narrative, and taking control of your own life. The progression, melody, and lyrics are undeniably emotional. So when I was in Italy, I played it on an organ. I tried to make it as dramatic as possible. Then when I got back I brought it into Will Beasley, who produced our last two records, and the unreleased new album Gravity; and we chased that emotional feeling down a hole, and turned this song into a dramatic journey. I hope the world feels it and connects with it. Thank you so much to Rude for the opportunity.”
