Heather Nova – Other Shores


Bermudian singer-songwriter Heather Nova has released her eleventh studio album, entitled “Other Shores”. A 13-track covers album featuring intimate renditions of well-known tunes. The 55-year-old musician delivers this collection of songs with sparse production, just her soothing vocals over stripped-back instrumentation. “Other Shores” is a record of perfectly refreshing simplicity. Nova opens the album with Foreigner’s 1981 synth-pop hit “Waiting For A Girl Like You” followed by the Bee Gees’ 1977 disco banger “Stayin’ Alive”, making both songs her own in beautiful acoustic versions. It’s amazing how she flips Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” from party track to acoustic ballad with nothing more than cello and guitar to accompany her vocals. Neil Young’s “Like A Hurricane” and Michael Kiwanuka’s “Cold Little Heart” also get the acoustic treatment from Heather Nova. She will be on European tour in October and November.
