Gus Dapperton Drops Cher Cover as Lead Single for Upcoming EP

Alt-pop artist Gus Dapperton has released his cover of Cher's 1998 hit single "Believe" as the lead single for his forthcoming EP, Tunes For Late Spring. The EP is scheduled for release on June 7, 2024, and is currently available for pre-order.

Dapperton's version of "Believe" offers a personal and unique interpretation of the classic song. The accompanying music video, which he co-directed with Ruby Amadelle, features two women sitting next to each other on a plane, eventually embracing each other. The video has been described as "filolésbico" or lesbian-themed.

This release follows a string of previous singles from the upcoming EP, including "What You Won't Do For Love," Dapperton's reimagined version of Bobby Caldwell's 1978 hit. Tunes For Late Spring will feature a total of 7 tracks, with collaborations like "Lil Tune" featuring Electric Guest and "Fallout" featuring Lil Yachty and Joey Bada$$. Dapperton has also released solo tracks "Homebody," "Sunset," and "Don't Let Me Down" featuring BENEE.

The 27-year-old singer-songwriter has built a reputation as an unclassifiable artist who doesn't follow mainstream trends. Dapperton has cited David Bowie as an influence and has been open about his love for expressing himself through fashion and makeup. In a 2018 interview, he stated, "I like to show myself as I feel comfortable. If one day I want to wear women's clothes, I do. I love wearing nail polish and bold eye shadow, why not?"

Dapperton has emphasized the importance of expressing his emotions through his music. In a 2019 interview, he shared that "it's important for my mental health to release the emotions I carry inside." With Tunes For Late Spring, Dapperton continues to showcase his artistic vision and eclectic style through a collection of reinterpreted cover songs.

Gus Dapperton's cover of "Believe" is now available to stream on all major platforms. Fans can look forward to the full release of Tunes For Late Spring on June 7, 2024, which promises to deliver more of Dapperton's signature blend of genres and personal expression.
