‘Like a Version,’ Popular Australian Covers Series, Arrives in the Americas

Australia’s Triple J radio is set to release a compilation album of their “Like a Version” cover series in North America for the first time. Down under, the “Like a Version” collections regularly top the Australian charts and its creators hope to replicate that success in the U.S. and Canada.

Inspired by the Madonna song “Like a Virgin,” the “Like a Version” segment began in 2004 and airs a new cover every week. The segment now sits on the station’s most popular slot — Friday mornings — and has expanded to include numerous international artists covering songs by artists who’ve inspired them. Recent sets include Haim covering Shania Twain’s “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” and Milky Chance covering Nelly Furtado’s “I’m Like a Bird.”

The compilation album, a “best-of” set which will hit shelves and digital platforms Sept. 29 via Metropolitan Groove Merchants, will feature CHVRCHES covering the Arctic Monkeys, Mumford & Sons re-imagining White Lies, Mark Ronson taking on Queens of the Stone Age, Tame Impala reinterpreting Kylie Minogue, and Chet Faker covering Sonia Dada, totaling 21 tracks in all.

The previous albums have done very well in Australia, with the most recent 12th volume in the series bowing at No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart last October.
