I am extremely happy and so excited to update this weeks Notebook with details of my new covers EP that will be released digitally this friday. I was dropping hints yesterday on the songs that feature on the EP and two of you in particular got very close (a round of applause to one Mr.Gawn who correctly guessed Aerosmith and Mr.Reynolds at the fantastic blog MyFizzyPop rightly identified the title track!). So without further delay – Here’s the track-listing… She’s Out Of My Life, I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing and the title track is Every Breath You Take (listen here)
I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the project. The EP was of course produced by the wonderful Steve Anderson. This summer, the two of us spent days in the studio, experimenting with different interpretations of songs by writers that we’ve always respected and loved. Diane Warren, for example, is one of my favourite composers! I wanted to bring a feminine edge to these songs, originally performed by three iconic male vocalists. I hope you enjoy the EP. We absolutely loved making it 🙂
Those of you asking ‘what about your original songs, Harriet?!’ Don’t worry. We have plans for further releases this year! But my lips are sealed. I just thought that a digital EP of covers would be a good intermission between my recent single, Fly and my next release of original material. I wanted to celebrate some of the music that has inspired the way I interpret and write songs with my own versions of these iconic classics. You can hear an exclusive preview of the EP by clicking on the Sound-cloud link here.
Lots of Love,
P.S. As soon as I know, I’ll update the site with details about where you can download the Every Breath You Take EP this friday. But stay tuned to my Twitter, Facebook page and of course here about Fridays digital download links such as Amazon & iTunes.
