Cover Album Update

As you would expect, bugger all to report in Doves world. The fans cover album is coming along nicely. I have received several tracks already, they sound great. Its a fantastic start to the project!

If you haven’t already, you can vote for the album title here. Its very tight with Echoes In The Alleyway leading the way, 6 votes ahead of Where They’re Calling From. The poll will run until the end of the month.

My favourite Doves cover is probably their take on Blackbird. Which you can listen to here, if you haven’t heard it before. I listed a bunch of tracks doves have covered in the past at the discography here. Feel free to let me know if I missed any off! Not included are the tracks that made onto releases such as Willow Song.

Cover Album Project

In the last post I floated the idea of putting together a Doves cover album, not quite sure if there would be any interest. That was only a few hours ago and the response already has been pretty good. So let’s make this happen…

Like similar projects done by fans of other bands, the album would be not for profit. I’m thinking of looking into the possibly going with a charity where we could put up an optional donation link so any money goes straight to that charity. But otherwise this will be a free download for everybody to enjoy.

So if you are interested, email me at to register your interest, if you can let me know which track you would like to cover, so we can avoid having say three versions of There Goes The Fear. You do not need to have the cover ready now, but if you do already have something to submit that is cool also. Once I know how many tracks we have, I will starting putting out more details such as a deadline etc.

The album will have artwork/sleeve notes so we can put some info on that about each track/artist. If you have any questions do feel free to get in touch at
