New Music: Hatch – Ticket To Anywhere (Tracy Chapman Cover)
Australian producer Hatch reinvents a Tracy Chapman classic.
You know those songs that you just get sick of because every single person covers it? Tracy Chapman’s 1998 hit Fast Car is one of these, being covered by everyone from Sam Smith to Boyce Avenue and now, Australian producer/singer Hatch has joined the ranks, with a cover entitled Ticket To Anywhere. Unlike the others, Hatch’s cover takes it up a notch and definitely is one of the better ones, taking the well-known guitar riff and smashing it with a heap of bass and drum work as well as adding his own vocal taste to the song. It’s a definite tune, highlighting both the sadness and optimism of the original whilst adding his trademark future-R&B twist.
