The White Album Covered

Is this the best album by the best band of all time? We’ll leave it to everyone’s individual taste to answer that thorny question. In the meantime, The Beatles aka ‘the white album’ is an iconic double-album whose influence has reigned supreme over the record world since 1968.

While many Beatles tracks have become instant cover classics, there are not many among their ranks that make up the dense double white album. The album has been criticised for being too fragmented, not having a uniting thread, for being too long...and yet, more than fifty years after its release, its coherence has united the planet in agreement. Its thirty tracks are indivisible, and if one is shocked that tracks like “Ob-la-di Ob-la-da”, “Julia”, and “Revolution 9” could be on the same album, it is also the album’s great strength and its unstoppable originality that helped it make its mark on history. In fact, few artists have dared to take on the white album’s compositions, but those who have certainly made their mark.

On the album, its Paul’s songs that attract the most covers: “Helter Skelter” has often been rediscovered by the younger generation thanks to its many covers (U2, Noir Désir and Siouxsie), “Ob-la-di Ob-la-da” has been favoured by the public thanks to Jamaican covers by Arthur Conley and Ken Lazarus. But John’s songs, some of his best and most inspired, generally frighten artists who don’t dare venture near them.

Yet if you look hard enough, you’ll find the entire White Album covered by others, and in a wide variety of styles. Unknown bands, indie bands, solo musicians, arrangers, jazz musicians, soul singers, Kingstonians, blind rockers, parodists, legendary voices, and even Anderson .Paak, have come together here to reinterpret, in order and with enthusiasm, the most famous double album in music history.
