Nap Eyes – When I Come Around [Music Video]

Today Nap Eyes dropped their music video for the Green Day cover of When I Come Around.
The track is taken from the EP of the same name which comes out on May 14, 2021 via Royal Mountain Records and Jagjaguwar.
They made their version more of a mellow dreamy alternative pop vibe.

About the track:
Nap Eyes’ love for Green Day is well-documented. Time and time again in interviews, songwriter and vocalist Nigel Chapman has named the early work of Green Day as a singular inspiration in his musical pursuits. The deep reverence is clear in Nap Eyes’ mellow, lap steel-laden take on the Green Day classic “When I Come Around.” The influence of the Oakland punk trio might have been heretofore lost on Nap Eyes listeners — but never more. This clever, heartfelt cover becomes a bit of skeleton key for the discerning ear inspired to listen back through Nap Eyes catalogue with Green Day in mind.

On the track, Chapman explains: “Green Day has been my favourite band since I was 12 years old, and “When I Come Around” has always been one of my favourites by them. The quality of the song speaks for itself; it’s one of the greatest songs ever written, in my opinion. I’ve been working under the influence and in the shadows of this and other Green Day songs, periodically reconnecting with and being floored by them, ever since I first began writing my own songs years ago. I hope the world will understand that getting to record this cover with Nap Eyes is a longtime dream come true.”
