Foster the People are ramping up on the media circuit, generating the buzz to sell their new record Supermodel (March 14, Columbia Records).

They just got back from London, where they made it on Zane Lowe’s BBC 1 show.  The band covered the Calvin Harris EDM banger, “Under Control.”  Back in LA, I had the opportunity to interview Mark and I asked him why the band chooses the cover songs they do.

He said the BBC has a list of songs that they have A-listed.  Mark looked at the list, saw Calvin Harris and in a couple hours, figured out the jam.

The original is a real thumper, but Foster the People break it down to its some melody, then put their Foster the People shine on it.

Go with yourself.
