This is a new one: a pop punk band called Back Garden Light from Bordeaux, France has released a new cover of The Jackson 5’s famous “I Want You Back.”
Originally released in 1969 and written by The Corporation, Back Garden Light’s version of the song is still just as energetic and feel-good as the original. Back Garden Light’s music video for the cover was filmed at Claouey Skatepark, the oldest skatepark in France, which is fitting for the song, as the park was built during the 1970’s. The track itself was produced by Back Garden Light’s guitarist Matthieu Kirby.

Vocalist Max Desgarnier said the band chose to cover “I Want You Back” because they wanted a song that was iconic, but not overplayed. This is their first cover in a while, and they thought The Jackson 5 track was fitting “because of its classic status, it’s instantly recognizable, and it has personally inspiring vocals.”
Back Garden Light formed in 2014, and since then, they have been busy writing their own songs and filming their own music videos. Their latest EP, Life’s A Game, is available on iTunes and Spotify, and it was mixed and mastered by Bert and Eric, members of the notable pop punk outfit Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!
