Music: The Young Professionals Cover Abba’s “S.O.S.”

The Advocate shares the latest from The Young Professionals, an electro-pop duo who are as acclaimed for their original material as they are for covering, remixing and reinventing classic pop tracks.

From their upcoming release Remixes and Covers, this video showcases their take on the ABBA mega-hit “S.O.S.”

The upcoming Remixes and Covers, due July 31, collects some of those remixes and also features TYP’s sharp takes on several songs by artists beloved to the LGBT community such as Abba’s “S.O.S.”

The video for the duo’s rendition, which sounds a lot sexier and slinkier than the bouncy original, features vintage footage of the Swedish quartet and premieres exclusively today with The Advocate.

The duo explains they they were originally asked to cover the song for an Abba tribute album. “Having the opportunity to choose the song from all these amazing songs and being able to create a new production for it and make it our own was great experience,” they tell The Advocate via email, adding, “Of course if we discuss “LGBT” music, ABBA is the corner stone of the genre.”
