Andy Black + Juliet Simms Cover Adele’s ‘When We Were Young’ for ‘Punk Goes Pop, Vol. 7′
Hello ... it's them. Rocking couple Andy Black and Juliet Simms are taking on one of the biggest pop acts in the world, adding their own spin to an Adele favorite "When We Were Young" for the seventh installment of the Punk Goes Pop compilation series.
This time out, the husband-and-wife musicians took the lyrics, "It was just like a movie / It was just like a song" to heart, employing director Patrick Fogarty to help give the video for the track a very cinematic look. Shot in black-and-white, Black's matinee idol looks take center stage while the sultry Simms lies in the background just waiting for the spotlight. By the second verse, the roles switch with the stunning Simms looking like a movie star of an era gone by and leading the way through the eye-catching clip. They provide the perfect compliment to each other.
While Black, aka Andy Biersack, is known for a hard rocking style with Black Veil Brides, he has explored a more accessible sound under the Andy Black moniker and the cover of "When We Were Young" shows his versatility. His voice seems a perfect fit to cover the Adele favorite with Simms and he keeps it piano-centric even though his version is a bit more upbeat.
The Punk Goes Pop, Vol. 7 collection is out now, featuring acts like the Amity Affliction, New Years Day, Dance Gavin Dance and Andy Black covering songs from some of the biggest modern pop stars. You can purchase the disc now via the platform of your choosing here.
