French easycore band Back Garden Light has released their cover of The Jackson 5‘s first number one hit “I Want You Back”. Originally released in 1969 (and written by Motown songwriting team The Corporation), the new, heavier update still maintains the feel good vibes and even throws in some hand claps for good measure.
“This is the first cover we’ve recorded in awhile and we wanted it to be special; something that is iconic, but also not over played,” says vocalist Max Desgarnier. “We ended up choosing ‘I Want You Back’ by the Jackson 5 because of its classic status, it’s instantly recognizable, and it has personally inspiring vocals.“
Keeping with the retro theme, the band chose to film the music video at Claouey Skatepark, the oldest Skatepark in France, constructed some time in the 70’s. It was shot by Van Espen Studio, while the track was produced by the band’s guitarist Matthieu Kirby.
