Dinosaur Pile-Up Releases Amazon Original Cover of Run DMC’s “It’s Tricky”

Rock band Dinosaur Pile-Up released an Amazon Original cover of Run DMC’s “It’s Tricky” The track is only available to stream and purchase on Amazon Music.

“We chose ‘It’s Tricky’ because it’s one of my all-time favorite songs, I just love it and it gets me pumped,” says Dinosaur Pile-Up’s Matt Bigland. “We were actually on a drive during a US tour  listening to music on the stereo in the van, and we’d been trying to think of which song we should cover – and then ‘It’s Tricky’ came on and Mike turned to me and I turned to Mike and we were both like – WE COULD DO TRICKY!!! And the decision was instantly made. We were stoked on how much fun we could have with it and how heavy we could make it! When we recorded it we basically just had a blast and tried to make it as much fun as possible to record – and I think you can hear that in the track. I hope fans get pumped on it – and slam it on the stereo and party.” 

In 2019, Dinosaur Pile-Up released their acclaimed new album Celebrity Mansions via Parlophone. The album’s release saw Dinosaur Pile-Up lay claim as one of the UK’s most exciting and talked-about rock bands on both sides of the Atlantic.
