ARTISTdirect has partnered with Celldweller to premiere this exclusive behind-the-scenes video from Celldweller, where the artist covers "Tragedy" by the Bee Gees. He didn't care about the rock vs. disco genre battles and covered this track…because he wanted to! Covering the Bee Gees is so uncool that it actually is cool.
The song appears on Celldweller (10 Year Anniversary Edition), which is out via FiXT on June 11.
"I'm not really a big fan of doing covers, but it seemed like the time for me to pay homage to a song that helped me brace my masculinity as a kid," Celldweller told us about the song. "Who better to do that than the Bee Gees? So I covered the song 'Tragedy.'"
Celldweller aka Klayton offered a personal introduction of why he chose to cover the song in this unreleased 2006 interview clip. You can also take a peek at Klayton in the studio working on the recording of the track in his 2006 studio.
