If you were going to cover a Blondie song, you’d probably pick one of the classics, right? Something off Parallel Lines, or maybe “Atomic”? Well, that’s why you are not Swedish pop iconoclast ceo. The man born Eric Burglund (along with some help from fellow Swedes jj) has instead given the world his floaty, zoned-out cover of Blondie’s 1999 post-reunion single “Maria,” and he’s done it in honor of tennis great Maria Sharapova. Sharapova isn’t having the best month, but maybe this will turn things around. Download the track and watch its accompanying icon-making video, which only uses a small piece of the song, below.
