Listen to Phantogram’s Cover of Phil Collins’ ‘Take Me Home’
Phantogram released their third full-length record, Three, today (Oct. 7), but they're also giving us something from another project in which they're involved. You can listen to their cover of Phil Collins' 1985 hit "Take Me Home" above.
It's the opening track on The Time Is Now, a benefit album for amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, that also comes out today. The disc features 14 modern acts putting their own spin on hits of the '80s. This includes Aloe Blacc's take on Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean," Metric re-recording the Church's "Under the Milky Way" and LP covering U2's "Pride (In the Name of Love)." You can see the full track listing below.
The fourth and final single from Collins' 12-times platinum album from 1985, No Jacket Required, "Take Me Home" arrived shortly after his performance at Live Aid, where he made headlines by performing at both the London and Philadelphia concerts. Sting and his former Genesis bandmate Peter Gabriel contributed backing vocals, and the track reached No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100.
