Shawn Colvin gave music fans a real treat when she announced the release of her forthcoming Uncovered, a full-length featuring recordings of songs by the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder.
“The title Uncovered has a few meanings,” says Colvin in a recent press release. “It means uncovering as in an excavation, and uncovered in the sense of vulnerability. This album was made very spontaneously, we didn’t over-think or overdub it. One of my friends said to me, ‘You sound so exposed on this record!’ and I think that’s the thematic key: vulnerability.”
Now, in anticipation of the album’s release on Sept. 25, Colvin has released a video for album track “Hold On,” a Tom Waits cover. Watch the video in the player above.
