Sky Ferreira Recovers What Was Hers, Celebrates With “Voices Carry” Cover
Just a few days ago through a public letter posted on Instagram Sky Ferreira addressed the SoundCloud bosses to kindly ask them to give her back access to her personal SoundCloud account, for she had lost the owner privileges to that account following an apparent argument or disagreement with her record label. The singer had been intentionally locked out of the account; an account she had personally created before her signing to her label and that contained multiple recordings dear to her heart.
Thanks to the massive support of her fans who bombarded SoundCloud with messages on social media, Sky recovered her account yesterday. And as a token of gratitude, the singer liberated an unreleased song; a cover of “Voices Carry” by ‘Til Tuesday (1985). Read below her celebratory statement first and then stream the song.
Hi! Thanks to my fans & soundcloud for helping me get my login back so quickly. I wanted to post something now that it's back in my hands. Here's a cover of ~Voices Carry~. I've played it live a few times this year. It's always been one of my favorite songs but it's kind of deeply personal to me,lyrically. I recorded this in one day when a engineer had a room at Sunset Sound available.He let me use the studio for free as a favor, some of my friends came in and played the bass/guitar/drums for me after calling them 45 minutes before asking if they could try playing random stuff for me to work with/write on. Nobody has produced it (except me... I guess but this version isn't produced or mixed.It also doesn't have the synths & guitars I added today. I am out of the country so my computer keeps crashing.)I didn't want to wait until I was back to upload something. I have no idea what this sounds like in speakers either lol. This is what I call the infant demo because it's basically the scratch demo since it hasn't really been worked on & what not. It's also the only thing I can post without getting in trouble by other people involved on other songs.I promise I will be posting a lot more stuff on here & will let you know more about my album. I always feel a lot more comfortable sharing music related things here instead of Instagram etc
thanks for the support
Can you believe it had been 5 years without any “new” Sky Ferreira song (her last album was 2013’s “Night Time, My Time")? Although this is just a cover, this song has made my day. What an incredible voice Sky has! She could record the alphabet and I would still buy it.
By the way, Sky has promised she will soon return with brand new material (at last!). And apparently she’s thinking about dropping 2 singles at once. They might be coming after the summer.
