Heather Nova releases cover version of 'Waiting For A Girl Like You'
29 October 2021
'Waiting For A Girl Like You' brings out the hopeless romantic side in you. This poetic cover of the Foreigner classic will make you feel the butterflies in your stomach again.
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.
"I’ve always loved how dreamy and romantic this song is - it’s one of my guilty pleasure tracks! And the way the melody takes off in the chorus gets me every time. For my version, I wanted to strip it back from all those big synths, and just play it really simply on the piano so you could feel the aching in the song in a new very intimate way. Instead of changing the gender, like I often do with a cover, it felt really special and poignant to sing this from one girl to another."
Nova's album ‘Other Shores’, will consist Heather’s versions of some well-known classics, as well as a few tracks you might not have heard before. The album will be released in the summer 2022.
