Never one to shy away from different genres, k-os has just released his own spin on The Cars’ power pop classic, “Just What I Needed”. We had a quick chat to discuss which genre he’ll dive into next, his dream Canadian music festival line-up, and what’s next.
From The Strait: Tell us about the new single – what made you want to cover this song in particular?
k-os: JWIN is a childhood fave song.
Why I covered it?
Well… cuz …
I think it’s time to rock.
FTS: You’re never afraid to dive into new genres and styles of music. What’s a genre you’d like to try next, that you haven’t yet done?
k-os: Miami Bass Music.
FTS: If you were curating the ultimate Canadian music festival with yourself as headliner, what other bands and artists would you fill out the line-up with?
FTS: Knowing what you know now with your years of success in the music industry, what advice would you want to give to your past self as they’re just starting out?
k-os: Marry her.
FTS: What’s next for you?
k-os: Astral travel to an imagined but arising period in time of complete peace and harmony in the Universe that lasts as long as it’s supposed to.
