“While I fully expect some folks will be irked that I dared reimagine this particular song, my hope is that what I've created will transcend their scepticism,” he adds about a release that stems from one of the best-known songs of all time, expanding its horizons and adding their personal stamp. This new single originated as the result of a challenge from a musical mentor of him during the pandemic. “I mentioned an affinity for the 90s and they suggested a list of choices. Creep was one of them and I've always loved the song personally, so I started down a kind of electronic, industrial, vocoder-driven road, which turned out really amazing.”
Ships Have Sailed, Will Carpenter's brainchild that now permanently includes drummer Art Andranikyan has brough several songs in the top five on listener-voted KROQ Locals Only. Their singles Escape, Stay and Take My Money, all reached number one. Now they give a twist to the legendary Radiohead song, reimagining it with only a piano and a weird, diffused cello. A new version that preserves its DNA.
