T¥P cover Lana & Wham!

Looking back, one of the most joyous album releases of 2012 was the international release of The Young Professionals’ (T¥P) debut album, 9am to 5pm, 5pm to Whenever, on Polydor Records/Universal Music Group. The Israeli electro-pop duo, that is producer Johnny Goldstein and singer/songwriter/producer Ivri Lider, originally released the album in their home country in 2011, entitled 09:00 to 17:00, 17:00 to Whenever. The album represents each hour of the day, working hours to night life.
The band’s electronic sound is fused with guitar and percussion. With TYP D.I.S.C.O., the band’s debut single sampling Ottawan’s first international hit D.I.S.C.O., they created something new, with a touch of something old. The current single, Be With You Tonight, follow-up to 20 Seconds, samples the iconic violin chords from Joe Dassin’s Et Si Tu N’existais Pas.
The international version of the album comes with a slightly different track listing, which includes a remix of TYP D.I.S.C.O. by Offer Nissim. The guys also serve a remarkably daring cover of Lana Del Rey’s 2011 single Video Games. Check the result in the play list below. You will find yourself dancing to the beat watching T¥P’s latest video at the top of this entry. As we are so very near to Christmas, the guys offer us a Seasonal remake of a classic Wham! track. Very Merry y’all.
