Mac DeMarco has covered Eric Clapton’s ‘Change The World’ - a track that Clapton originally wrote for the soundtrack of the John Travolta-starring fantasy-romance-thriller movie ‘Phenomenon’.
Mac’s rendition of the three-time Grammy Award-winning track is part of an upcoming release by The Editorial Magazine. The publication is releasing their first cassette compilation, and Blood Orange, Blue Hawaii and Weyes Blood are among those contributing tracks. Doldrums, Sean Nicholas Savage, TOPS, and Mac’s mates Walter TV are also on the release. For the full line-up, and to pre-order ‘Editorial & Friends’, head here.
