Yes, it’s a cover.
My information on this may be shaky but as I understand it, the artists (Bad Wolves) were intending to collaborate on this song with the Cranberries prior to Dolores O’Riordan’s death. She was only four years older than me. This song therefore became a tribute, and a compelling one it is.
The lyrics are a little different but they point out something utterly essential: we haven’t learnt. For all our advances in technology, society and medicine, it truly is ‘the same old theme in 2018.’
