Duncan Sheik

Singer-songwriter Duncan Sheik’s career has carried on from his ’90s “Barely Breathing” days on the pop charts to triumph on Broadway penning the music for the Tony-sweeping musical Spring Awakening.

He’s recently paired again with his Spring writing partner Steven Sater on a new Alice in Wonderland musical for the stage, but in the meantime, Sheik’s most current collaboration is with an entire decade of synth-pop heartbreak: His Covers 80s will be released June 7, taking on songs from the likes of The Smiths, Tears for Fears,  Dépêche Mode, Thompson Twins, New Order, The Cure, and Love and Rockets.

Stream his version of of New Order’s classic “Love Vigilante” here:
