Taken By Trees Shares George Michael “Careless Whisper”

Swedish dream pop act Taken By Trees just released an entrancing cover of George Michael’s Careless Whisper” with Billboard. Produced by Dan Lissvikk (of Swedish dance-rockers Studio) with Mr Little Jeans on backing vocals, frontwoman Victoria Bergsman explains why she chose the song:“‘Careless Whisper’ came to mind around the time when George Michael passed away. I wanted to make a tribute to him, a thank you for all his amazing music his made. The whole song was really hard for me to sing, my range is not that wide…I have always felt that George Michael or Wham! would sound amazing in a Balearic production. My version is leaning into that Balearic style with an added Cumbia rhythm for a laid back groove.”

Taken By Trees recently released their 4th full length LP Yellow To Blue, a playful and hopeful ten-track collection that explores the pop genre to its fullest, eliciting the help of Jesse Shatkins’ A-list calibre (Sia, Rihanna) and co-writers Ariel Rechtshaid (Haim, Adele), Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend) and Daniel Nigro (Empress Of, Carly Rae Jepsen). Bergsman, formerly of The Concretes, has been featured on Peter, Bjorn and John‘s global hit “Young Folks“, which garnered over 115 million streams on Spotify and has appeared on multiple late night TV shows such as Jay Leno andConan O’Brien. Taken By Trees’ crisp sun-soaked driving rhythms, gritty bass, and lush hi-fi mixes have garnered over 30 million streams since 2015.
