Scandroid (feat. Klayton) Releases Cover of Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’


Released just in time for the Halloween season, the lyric video for Scandroid‘s cover of ‘Thriller’ pays homage to the original Michael Jackson music video, featuring shots of robotic zombies and werewolves performing ‘Thriller’s’ classic dance moves.

“I knew when I started the album (Monochrome) that I wanted to do a Halloween-related track. It only took me 1/4 of a second to conclude this would be my perfect chance to cover a track I loved during the 80s. I probably watched the ‘Thriller’ music video 100+ times on my parents VCR after I recorded it from MTV.” – Says Klayton.

‘Thriller’ appears on Scandroid‘s upcoming sophomore album “Monochrome” available October 27th, 2017.

Scandroid, the modern Synthwave project from Detroit based artist/producer Klayton, best known for his multi-genre project Celldweller/Circle of Dust returns with the full-length sophomore album “Monochrome,” available Friday, October 27th. Featuring 13 tracks, from the retro-synth pop hooks of ‘Afterglow,’ ‘Rendezvous,’ ‘Future Bloodline,’ and ‘A Thousand Years,’ to the instrumental epics ‘Oblivia’ and ‘Searching for a Lost Horizon,’ “Monochrome”imagines an alternate future where truth is hidden in “Monochrome.”

The album includes modern synthwave covers of John Williams’ famous Star Wars opus “The Force Theme”as well as a hauntingly powerful cover of Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ to be released on Friday the 13th of October. The album concludes with a bonus remix of ‘Thriller’ from mysterious synthwave artist/producer Pylot.

Following the international success of the debut Scandroid album (Top 10 iTunes Electronic Album USA, Russia, Canada, Germany, United Kingdom, Australia & #5 Billboard Electronic Album), “Monochrome”continues the journey of ‘Red’ & ‘Aphelion’ in a cyberpunk storyline set in Neo-Tokyo in the year 2518.
