Soccer Mommy has shared a cover of R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion.”
The cover arrives as part of Deezer’s InVersions 90s Project, which features 16 covers of ’90s classics.
“There are so many bands and artists from the ’90s that inspire me personally. I think there was a lot of good songwriting but also the production had so much range and so much creativity,” Sophie Allison explains. “I wanted to do a version on my own that was a little more solemn and dark. I wanted to keep the chords and arrangement pretty much the same to the original but just add my own voice.”
Listen to Soccer Mommy’s “Losing My Religion” below.
In addition to Soccer Mommy’s cover of “Losing My Religion,” InVersions 90s Project sees Arya Starr covering TLC’s “No Scrubs,” Priya Ragu covering Ace Of Base’s “All That She Wants,” and more.
Just last month, Soccer Mommy shared her new album, Sometimes, Forever. The album closer, “Still,” serves as a sort of thesis of the album, as Soccer Mommy sings the lines, “I don’t know how to feel things small/ It’s a tidal wave or nothing at all.” Throughout the 11 tracks of Sometimes, Forever, Soccer Mommy sings of these extreme highs and lows, sketching them out in vulnerable lyrics and grand melodies.
This album is also Soccer Mommy’s most seasoned to date, with a finessed, gritty production that you won’t find on her previous DIY recordings. This is because Allison teamed up with producer and composer Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never), who offered up his distinctive eerie twist to the record.
