The Covers Sessions EP (2011)

When Royal Wood had a few hours to kill on a rainy day in Halifax, fate was at hand. After hearing Foster The People’s “Pumped Up Kicks” he was inspired to do a cover version and put it online as a lark. What happened was a blogosphere fire that spawned the idea of making a fan voted EP of songs based on their votes. Thousands of submissions were taken and the result was The Cover Sessions EP. Though not intended for release, it was given to fans who pre-ordered his upcoming release WE WERE BORN TO GLORY. Subsequently no copies remain to purchase, but you can hear it here.
