Heather Nova

‘Other Shores’, consisting of Heather’s versions of some well-known classics, as well as a few tracks you might not have heard before, will be released in summer 2022.

After releasing her full-band rock album, ‘Pearl’, in 2019, Bermudian singer-songwriter, Heather Nova, is now exploring other shores, and releases an album of acoustic coverversions. ‘Other Shores‘ takes you on a journey that’s intimate and deeply personal; Heather brings her unique sensitivity to these songs with new and unexpected versions of something you thought you knew.

"I’m first and foremost a songwriter, but along the way I’ve discovered I also enjoy being an interpreter sometimes: For me, recording a cover is all about stripping away the original production, to find the bare bones of the song. I love the process of getting right inside the emotion of the song, feeling it as my own, and presenting it in a new, more raw and intimate form. I’m fascinated by how songs written by men feel very different when sung by a woman.", Heather says.

Heather on her new single 'Never Gonna Give You Up'; "Back in ‘89, I was a senior in art school on an exchange program in Rome. I fell in love with everything about the city. “Never Gonna Give You Up” was top of the charts, and all the Italian boys were sporting trench coats like Rick Astley! So, the song has always been reminiscent of that time for me. A couple of years ago my girlfriend who was on the program with me, asked me to sing a cover of it for her. In doing so, I discovered I really liked the song acoustically. I took it far away from pop and could really feel the aching of the lyrics. Adding cello made it feel so beautifully melancholy.".
