Covered in the Flood is a full-length studio album of cover songs by American musician Chris Carrabba, released on November 17, 2011. It was available exclusively during his solo US tour in 2011.[2]

Background and recording[edit]

In an interview with PropertyOfZack at SXSW in 2013, Carrabba described the artists on the LP as "my influences and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with embracing them." He stated that he didn't want the album "to be pure imitation."[4]
