I am happy to share my new record, Covers, with you today. It features my rendition of an all-time favourite song of mine – “Strange Powers” by The Magnetic Fields.
I recorded this stripped down on a classical guitar in front of one mic, so you can really hear Stephen Merritt’s songwriting. “When we kiss it feels like a flying saucer landing” is one of the best lyrics.
I hope that as you listen to this album you find a renewed love for the songs I chose to cover. I have been influenced and inspired by each songwriter on this album and it has been so fun to record them in my own way, in collaboration with my producer, Joel Plaskett.
Thank you for spending time with this collection,
