Portland-based openly gay musician Logan Lynn is known for his dance and electronic music, but lately his sound has taken a different direction with his latest single, "Everything You Touch Turns To Gold" (see the video below).
Now he's released a free download of his cover of Miley Cyrus' hit single, "We Can't Stop" that continues his foray into a bold new direction.
Lynn has been releasing music since 2000. He gained national recognition when his music and videos were played on Logo TV, and while he may be known for his electro-emo music, on his website, he speaks about his new sound and breaking away from the music for which he's historically been known:
You may notice that this cover (and my latest single, released 8/13) are a bit of a departure from the electronics I’ve become synonymous with over the course of the past 15 years. These are just a glimpse into the new direction I’m headed in sonically. I have to keep changing things up or I get bored. This round I’ve put down the dance music a little and Gino has been playing all kinds of instruments instead. It’s been turning out really warm and special so far as a result. I figured this cold, dead pop song was the perfect thing to try and bring to life. Don’t get me wrong -- I actually really like Miley’s version, too…but it’s not particularly warm.
So if Cyrus' song has grown a bit stale after hearing it played everywhere for the past few months, then check out Lynn's version to get a "warmer," different take on this mammoth hit.
