This issue of Volume! continues the investigation started in #7-1, with new questions raised about cover versions, including copyright, intertextuality, and genealogy
Covers in popular music appear as a new way of questioning copyright and media strategies within cultural industries. This issue also diggs into intertextuality and how it feeds covers. According to other approaches, they become a temporal locomotive that reveal, through their genealogies, the cultural transformations of our societies. Far from being the simple repetition of a preexisting work, the cover version becomes, in this issue of Volume! the French journal of popular music studies, a special object of study to question, with a group of interdisciplinary texts, popular music in its social, creative and cultural dimensions.
