Machine Gun Kelly and Travis Barker teamed up to cover Edwyn Collins‘ 1994 classic “A Girl Like You” for the trailer to the Amazon Prime Video series, “Paradise City,” which premiered on March 25.
The “Paradise City” series, described as the tale of a “rock star with ties to the occult and a young rookie kid who idolizes him,” is a spin-off of 2017’s American Satan. It features Black Veil Brides singer Andy Biersack and Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce alongside several other well-known stars.
“Paradise City is the show made to inspire these millions of teenagers and young adults. It reminds us that there is no light without darkness, that sorrow and heartbreak can be the greatest drivers of art. It reminds us that there is always hope, that you are never alone and that music is always there if you let it be,” says a note from Ash Avildsen, the director of the series.
“Almost everything in the show was inspired by real events I have experienced growing up in a single mom household in which he was estranged from his father. Supernatural elements that have guided and misguided my life ever since moving to Los Angeles are also prevalent throughout the tale,” he added.
