The world hasn’t closed up shop, but hell may have frozen over. Scott Bradlee, the brains behind the delightfully soulful Motown Tribute to Nickelback, has finally released the septet’s debut album on Bandcamp.
Called Motown Tribute to Nickelback, the seven-song collection arrives highlighted by the New York troupe’s Motor City–hued remakes of Chad Kroeger classics like “Lullabye,” “Photograph,” and the eternally fantastic “How You Remind Me,” the song that initially sent Kroeger to stardom.
The album comes on the heels of a successful summer Kickstarter campaign crafted by Bradlee, an Astoria, Queens, musician and composer who came up with the idea for Motown Tribute to Nickelback after Nickelback was selected to play the halftime show at Ford Field during the Detroit Lions game Thanksgiving 2011.
The campaign, which reached its funding goal on July 9, raised $3,294 and allowed the group to record Motown Tribute to Nickelback, which sounds just like the description within the album’s name would imply.
Hosted on Bandcamp, the album comes free for your streaming pleasure and available for download at the end-of-the-world sale cost of $7.
