Kick your week off right with Greys’ cover of The Velvet Underground’s “Candy Says.” The track is streaming now via NME Magazine.

Frontman Shehzaad Jiwani on the cover: “I got on a huge Velvets kick right before we went into the studio to record Outer Heaven. Their self-titled record was on repeat for me in the van and while walking around Montreal in between studio sessions. The lyrics of ‘Candy Says’ really resonated with me on a personal level, and the feeling of being uncomfortable in your own skin fits with the album’s overarching themes of displacement and detachment. That, and I’ve always wanted to be a crooner.”
