Nico Vega have announced plans to release a new EP, Nico Vega Covers Nico Vega & Rod Stewart January 4th, 2011. The EP features a collection of cover versions of the band’s previous songs that have been re-imagined in a series of different styles as well as a cover of Rod Stewarts, “Young Turks” – for good measure.
Each week between now and New Years, the band will release a different song from the new EP as a free download. Fans can visit www.nicovega.com for the current available free download, “Million Years.”
To celebrate the new EP release, the band has asked fans to perform their own version of Nico Vega’s song, “Gravity”, Nico Vega Karaoke, if you will. Fans should film themselves performing the song in their own way (with friends, acapella, on the violin, piano, etc) and then to post their respective YouTube link on Nico Vega’s Facebook page. At the end of the contests, the one with the most “views” will win a Nico Vega prize package including a signed album and exclusive t-shirt and will have their video featured at NicoVega.com as well as the band’s Myspace, Facebook and Youtube pages.
