Samia has shared two new covers. One is her take on the Eagles ‘Desperado’, and the other is an acoustic rendition of Magnetic Fields’ ‘Born on a Train’, which also comes with an “anxiety version.” Take a listen below.
“These two songs feel like a conversation; they’re almost two totally opposite perspectives. I definitely relate more to the sentiment of ‘Desperado’ but wanted to give a voice to both sides,” Samia explained in a statement. “‘Born on a Train’ is one of my favorite songs ever and my friend Ned soundchecks with it every night on our tour so we always end up singing it together. Two other members of my band, Sam and Boone, played on the tracks and Caleb’s production is so honest and intimate; these songs feel special because I worked on them with my friends!!”
