Silversun Pickups Share Joe Jackson’s “I’m The Man”

Silversun Pickups share their cover of Joe Jackson’s “I’m The Man,” which is featured in the second season of Netflix’s The Lincoln Lawyer. Listen to their cover of “I’m The Man” and watch the trailer for Netflix’s The Lincoln Lawyer Season 2

Ted Humphrey, co-creator and showrunner of The Lincoln Lawyer shares, “we came up with the idea of using a couple of old songs in the show that fit what we were going for creatively, and then getting a really cool LA band to cover them.  The show features Los Angeles so heavily not just as a backdrop but as a character that it seemed natural to bring a sense of authenticity to it.  Silversun Pickups are the quintessential modern LA band – they capture the indie LA creative state of mind perfectly because they’ve lived it. Plus, in Season 2 we are focusing more heavily on Eastside LA than we did in Season 1, so they felt even more right because they all live on that side of town and embody that ethos. We were just hoping they’d be interested in doing it, and luckily for us, they were!” Co-showrunner Dailyn Rodriquez also shares, “Getting SSPU on board to cover the songs, and Butch Vig to produce them, was amazing (and so was getting to hang out during one of the recording sessions!)”

Today, the band also announce three dates supporting Greta Van Fleet in Nashville, Fort Worth, and Houston. Additionally, Silversun Pickups have remaining dates on their Physical Thrills headlining tour at the new LA venue The Bellwether on September 27th as well as at the Agua Caliente Casino in Rancho Mirage on September 29th. Tickets for all dates are now on sale here.
