Tokyo Police Club has announced a covers project, where the band will spend 10 hours a day for 10 days recording cover songs. (10 in all, naturally). These covers songs will be plucked from the last ten years of music.

Every day, before the band enters the Red Bull Studio Los Angeles, 3 potential songs for each day will be released via Polarioid (who will also be documenting the experience on their website.) The final track choice will be announced the night before.

As Tokyo Police Club vocalist and bassist Dave Monks says via press release, “We like anything that helps us grow as a band and take on new territories and just expand our boundaries a bit. In covering songs, you learn new tools that you might want to use in your own songs - good drum fills and basslines…the trading cards of music.”

As far as footage to check out, Polaroid will be releasing the potential songs and photos from recording. Livestream.com will be releasing a behind-the-scenes look at the recording every day between 7-8 PM PST. Check out the song premiere schedule with the partner websites below.
