On September 3rd, Guinness Australia will release on Facebook a cover version of The Cranberries first single “Dreams” recorded by Aussie singer Angus Stone.
The Australian artist was commissioned to record covers of two classic Irish tracks (“Dreams” by The Cranberries and “The Blower’s Daughter” by Damien Rice) to celebrate Arthur’s (Guinness) Day on September 28th. People will be asked to vote for their favorite cover and whichever song gets the most votes Angus will release and will donate the proceeds of the two songs to SurfAid, a charity helping to improve the health and educational opportunities of people in Indonesia.
Although Angus Stone said to prefer his Damien Rice cover, let’s try to make Dreams win! Results will be revealed on September 28th, one day before Dreams’ 20th release date anniversary. (pure coincidence!)
