Under the Covers is the fourth studio album by American comedy duo Ninja Sex Party, and their first cover album. The concept for the album and title were revealed on July 28, 2015,[1] and the album released on March 4, 2016.[2] Unlike their previous albums, Under the Covers is composed only of covers of songs from the 1970s and 1980s and strays from the duo's traditional comedic style.[3]

It is their first album released with Tupper Ware Remix Party as their backup band; NSP keyboardist Brian Wecht previously performed all instruments on the band's albums. On February 23, 2016, a music video was released for their cover of "Take On Me"; the video for their cover of "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" was released one week later, on March 1, 2016. The video cover of "Wish You Were Here" was released December 25, 2016. A follow-up, Under the Covers, Vol. II, was released on October 27, 2017.
