As a part of Tommy Hilfinger’s Classics Reborn ad campaign, Canadian pop star Shawn Mendes has recorded a cover of the Bruce Springsteen hit “Dancing in the Dark.”
For Tommy Hilfinger, “Reborn” must just mean “covered by a recent star,” as the track is almost identical to the original. Mendes’ softer, more pop vocal is the only real difference, and if anything, highlights how good Springsteen’s vocal was in the original. It’ll do the job for this ad and the audience it’s going for, but if you’re a fan of the Boss, there are more interesting covers elsewhere.
