DE’WAYNE is partnering with ESPN to release a cover of Daft Punk’s “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” for ESPN+’s commercial ad campaign. The musician has also shared an artistic visual alongside his cover of the track.

DE’WAYNE keeps in line sonically with the original Daft Punk recording but adds his own gritty flair to the reimagining. The guitar-heavy, upbeat rhythm is nothing new for DE’WAYNE, who released his debut full-length, Stains, earlier this year.

DE’WAYNE previously connected with Alternative Press about the album. During the conversation, the artist touched on his unique sound and what he hopes fans take away from his music.

“The hardest thing was just balancing putting my whole life onto a record,” he says. “That was the toughest way because I want to be so cutting edge. But I also want to have this pop sensibility to be able to have people sing along to it. It was just more like, ‘How can I do this in the most forward, innovative way and still have people just accept me as who I am? As this artist guy who just wants to write these big songs and be so confident and just have the attitude.’

“The biggest thing I want [them] to take from Stains [is] don’t listen to anyone,” he continues. “Believe in yourself. Go on a journey that you want to go on because if you don’t, you’re not going to be fulfilled. I stand behind this 100%.”

If you’re watching ESPN, you may hear DE’WAYNE’s cover during the commercial breaks. You can also catch the visual for “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” below. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
