Cover Me is the eighth album released by Foolish Creeper and is consists of covers of other popular songs throughout the years.

Production

A tradition that had started during the band's early years, studio warm-ups would often consist of the members performing their favorite songs released by other artists. While in the studio recording their upcoming album Revamp, Shevil had the recording engineer record their sessions. Once the first handful were recorded, Shevil presented the idea of releasing an album made up entirely of covers. He noted that fans often talked about the band's covers that ended a few of their albums, and said this might be a great opportunity to give them more of what they loved.

During the next few years of recording, the band recorded a total of 14 songs to be used on the album, including a re-recording of I Think We're Alone Now, which previously appeared on the band's Look Again album from 1992.
