Soccer Mommy, Ayra Starr, Rachel Chinouriri, and 13 other emerging talents from around the world have put their own unique spin on their favorite old school hits. InVersions 90s is now available worldwide exclusively on Deezer.
Soccer Mommy, the American multi-instrument singer and songwriter, covered R.E.M’s “Losing My Religion” and said about the 90s and her approach to the song: “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. 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.”
“With the 90s making a big comeback in both fashion and music lately, it is the perfect theme for the next iteration of our InVersions series,” said Nigel Harding, VP of Global Artist Relations at Deezer. “It was a decade filled with massive radio hits and a lot of creative songwriting across all genres, which gave our artists a lot to choose from. The results are fantastic and I can’t wait to see how the fans react.”
The ambitious InVersions 90s project include 16 songs across a wide range of genres, with artists representing nine different countries: France, Germany, Brazil, UK, US, Nigeria, Philippines, Switzerland, and Mexico.
It has been an exciting time for Soccer Mommy, who released her new album, Sometimes, Forever last month. The project was produced by Oneohtrix Point Never’s Daniel Lopatin.
Inspired by the concept that neither sorrow nor happiness is permanent, Sometimes, Forever is a fresh peek into the mind of an artist who synthesizes everything—retro sounds, personal tumult, the relatable disorder of modern life—into original music that feels built to last a long time. Maybe even forever.
