Ah, yes, Alien Tango is back. I have to admit, this guy is one of my favourite discoveries of 2020, like something good came out of that shitastic dumpster fire of a year. And he is back with a cover of the classic Beatles’ track, ‘Getting Better.’ Alien Tango is here to give us a post-holiday pick-me-up, and he proclaims:
Crank up your stereos! Open your ears! Cover your eyes! And behold the new production by Alien Tango, brought to you straight from a slightly groovier dimension than this one! A brand new hymn retrieved from a long time ago. A lighthouse in the middle of the catastrophe. Prised straight out of Paul and John’s wrinkly hands. Because there are never enough Beatles covers, and especially because everybody needs to be told everything is going to get better. Even if it’s a filthy lie.
So it is a lie. Or maybe it’s not. Does it really matter? This is fucking brilliant.
