Have You Read The Paper? Dominic Fike Performed ‘The Kiss Of Venus’ On The Late Late Show!

The ever-talented Florida native, Dominic Fike made his debut on The Late Late Show With James Corden to perform ‘The Kiss of Venus.’ Fike was asked to be a part of the McCartney III Imagined album to create his own rendition of McCartney’s track. Check out an article we wrote about the album here.

Three-Imagined Ft. Dominic Fike

Focused on re-creating the 2020 album, McCartney III, several artists were asked to re-imagine the originals. McCartney recruited big names in the music world with the likes of Phoebe Bridgers, Beck, and Anderson Paak.

Check out the full McCartney III Imagined album here.

Chosen to recreate the acoustic track, Fike approached ‘The Kiss Of Venus’ in his own, very special way. And, of course, what’s a Fike track without a catchy guitar riff?

A World Of Media

Fike recreated a majority of the lyrics on the track to fit a theme. Shifting the song’s focus to the world of media consumption in modern times, we can’t help but take a closer look.

“Then I asked her, have you read the paper? Okay / People talking about which side they’re taking / And if you know, then, baby, what’s your take on it? / Does it make you wanna leave?”

We can all interpret these lyrics in our own different ways, which is what makes music so special!

Fike’s Rockin’ Debut

On May 3, 2021, Fike absolutely rocked his first appearance on The Late Late Show With James Corden. Accompanied by an incredible band, we’re able to experience a live version of ‘The Kiss Of Venus.’ And, safe to say, it’s playing on repeat!

We already know that Fike is an incredible live performer that doesn’t only excel with his vocals, but with his incredible guitar skills as well. With a gritty guitar riff like that, it’s hard to not fall in love with this live version!

Fike also explains how he first purchased the album, Greatest Hits by Blink 182, followed by Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Now, he’s recreating a track for Paul McCartney, how awesome is that!

Paying homage to his original music video, Fike performed in front of a wall plastered with articles from The New York Times. For context, the video was filmed in an NYT printing plant and we’re obsessed. So. Many. Good. Shots.

And, if you haven’t seen the original video yet, do yourself a favor and check it out here

[…] How does it feel to be used by someone? Heartbreaking? Los Campesinos! documents these relationships with a folk-pop indie journey. The song is very emotional as the title says and it’s tear-jerking. […]
