Paradise City is set to premiere on Amazon Prime on Friday, March 26 and in the latest trailer for the film series Machine Gun Kelly and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker soundtrack the clip with an impressive cover of Edwyn Collins’ ’90s hit “A Girl Like You.”
“A Girl Like You” was originally written and performed by Edwyn Collins, the former Orange Juice frontman. The track appears on Collins third solo studio album, Gorgeous George (1994).
Listen to the cover below.
The film series features Black Veil Brides’ Andy Biersack, Bella Thorne, Cameron Boyce, Sleeping With Sirens’ Kellin Quinn, Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe, Lilith Czar’s Juliet Simms, Slipknot’s Sid Wilson and SiriusXM host Jose Mangin and more. The series is described on IMDB as, “The lives of a rock star who seems to have it all and a young rookie kid who idolizes him collide through their broken homes built by the music business.”
“Almost everything in Paradise City is inspired by real events I have experienced growing up in an unorthodox single mom household as a kid estranged from his famous father and then my adult life becoming self-made in the ruthless music industry,” director Ash Avildsen shared via Loudwire. “Supernatural elements that have guided and misguided my life ever since moving to Los Angeles are also prevalent throughout the tale.”
