2016 Southwest Invasion headliners Third Eye Blind recently released a 7-song EP made up of their interpretation of other people’s tracks. Called Thanks for Everything, the set definitely contains some surprises. Covers include a deep track by Bon Iver (“Blood Bank”), “F*ck Forever” by Babyshambles, Tim Buckley’s “Song of the Siren” and Queens of the Stone Age’s “In the Fade.”

Third Eye’s singer Stephen Jenkins said, “The idea with this EP was to amplify some of that music and art, and in doing so, catch inspiration for our next album.” A recent press release also notes that all proceeds from the EP will benefit the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh. As Billboard noted, Thanks for Everything is “both an ode to the music genres and artists who have influenced the band over the years and a fun experiment for the band’s search for fresh inspiration.”

You can buy Thanks for Everything on the band’s website and on Amazon.
