Multi-platinum selling rock band Switchfoot has shared a new remix of “i need you (to be wrong)” by the Los Angeles-based indie-pop group, lovelytheband.
Originally released as the lead single from Switchfoot’s critically acclaimed 2021 album interrobang, the new version adds an atmospheric, three-dimensional sensation to the poignant track.
As a band, Switchfoot was thrilled to hear their track re-imagined in this way. “This was almost a remix in reverse: taking a dissonant idiosyncratic single and making it sweet,” they said. “Lovelytheband did a great job – loved hearing their take on this one!”
Loveytheband, comprised of Mitch Collins (vocals, guitar), Jordan Greenwald (guitar, keyboards), and Sam Price (drums), first charted with their hit single, “Broken,” in 2017 and have been rising through the ranks of alternative pop ever since. Switchfoot has been a longtime inspiration to the group, so the collaboration felt both surreal and natural. “The first band I was ever a fan of was Switchfoot,” remarked Price. “To work with them on a song was a movie-like, full circle moment. It was truly special! I tried to bring as much of lovely into this version of ‘i need you (to be wrong),’ and I’m pumped on how it turned out.”
Switchfoot, which consists of Jon Foreman (vocals, guitar), Tim Foreman (bass), Jerome Fontamillas (keys, guitar) and Chad Butler (drums), will hit the road this summer for a major tour across America with Collective Soul. Fans can expect to hear favorites that span Switchfoot’s illustrious 20+ year career including selections from the acclaimed interrobang, released in August of last year.
The shows kick off in Gary, IN on July 15 and includes a hometown date at Cal Coast Credit Union Open Air Theatre in San Diego, CA on August 24. In addition, the tour includes stops at the YouTube Theatre in Inglewood, CA, and Palladium Times Square in New York. The 40+ date tour wraps up on September 25 in Dallas, TX.
