Milky Chance, the 5+ billion-streaming German duo known for their global hits and inventive, chameleonic approach to pop songwriting, has recently shared its official collection of the covers and remixes originally featured as part of their Road Tripping Radio soundtrack series.

In these videos called Trip Tape, Phillipp Dausch and Clemens Rehbein drive through cities like Berlin and San Francisco while listening to an alternate world radio where every song is performed by Milky Chance. Not only does this include Milky Chance originals, but knockout covers of smash hits like Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love,” Dua Lipa’s “Levitating,” and The Weeknd’s “Save Your Tears,” as well as remixes and demos. Another standout track is a stirring cover of Bad Bunny and Rosalía’s reggaeton hit, La Noche De Anoche – marking the duo’s first time singing in Spanish, their third language behind German and English.

Even with the pandemic and the long distances set apart, the duo continued their dedicated work ethic through the pandemic. In fact, when things began kicking into overdrive in August 2020, Rehbein decided he needed to be closer to Dausch and ended up moving to Berlin, where the latter had been living for the past few years. Once united, the pair began going into the studio together daily, really pushing themselves musically. 
“The studio became this escape, this hideaway for us,” said Rehbein. “It was a place where anything was possible.” 
They eventually began playing with covers of other artists, expanding their sound in bold and new directions and sharing the results on TikTok. When fans heard the new material the guys were working on, they rushed to social media and began asking them to release full versions. After seeing this outpour from their supporters, a mixtape felt like the right way to give them to people.
Milky Chance said in a statement: “We spent so much time in the studio the past couple of years working on new music and ‘Colorado’ was the big kick-off. But in lockdown two things happened - next to ‘Colorado’ we found ourselves with so many new songs we love and we also got into making our own versions of other artists’ songs we enjoy. On top of that Icarus made a remix of ‘Colorado’ that we’re absolutely buzzing about! So how can we bring all of these different things out?.. A TRIP TAPE.”
Milky Chance’s latest single “Colorado” is making a big impact both on radio and streaming after peaking at #2 on the Triple A Radio charts and hitting the Top 10 at Alternative Radio. The song amassed over 50 million global streams, helping the group place among Spotify’s 500 Most Streamed Artists. 

Together with Trip Tape, Colorado follows the 2019 release of their acclaimed album Mind The Moon (which NPR Music said introduced “new twists on the old concept of world music,” while American Songwriter said it “takes great leaps and lands in completely unexpected, but creatively rich, territory”) and their 2020 Jack Johnson collaboration “Don’t Let Me Down.”

The duo also appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and performed their song Don't Let Me Down.
