I’ve got a challenge for you. Watch songwriter Kalle Mattson‘s latest video “Avalanche” and try to guess as many album covers as you can (there’s 35 album covers total, recreated in the video to pay homage to some of the Mattson’s favourite records).
“I’ve had the video concept in my head for a long time actually,” Mattson says. “I remember being 10 or 11 years old flipping through the Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time magazine and choosing what records to borrow out of my dad’s collection based on the covers alone. All of the albums we recreated are super important to me & the video sort of serves as a window into what has influenced me growing up discovering music for the first time and then eventually writing songs. One of my main worries was that this would seem like a bit of an ego trip inserting my face into a famous Dylan cover or something but I really think it came out as a work of love for the artists, their records and the covers that also make those albums so special.”
