LISTEN: Joana Serrat, “I Still Believe in You” (Desert Rose Band Cover)

Apr 25, 2022

LISTEN: Joana Serrat,

Artist: Joana Serrat
Hometown: Near Barcelona, Spain
Song: “I Still Believe in You” (written by Chris Hillman and Steve Hill)
Album: Hardcore From the Heart
Label: Loose Music

In Their Words: β€œI am a big fan of The Byrds, in particular the music of Gene Clark and Chris Hillman. During the lockdown my boyfriend kept playing The Desert Rose Band’s Running album and every time ‘I Still Believe in You’ came on I felt a pang in my stomach. I also felt an attachment to the different layers of interpretation that the song offers. That’s one of the aspects that makes a song great, when they have their own private universe but offer you room to identify with and own it. I see this tune as a mixture of feelings, as a very intimate oath that contains the dark, the depth and the shallowness of the human existence. So I thought, ‘How cool would it be to cover it? This song is the perfect pop song.’ So I adapted it to the sound of my current album, Hardcore From The Heart, and presented it to the world.” — Joana Serrat
