To cover a song takes spirit. But to take a song, cover it, make it your own and come out of the process with something wholly new and fascinating. That takes genius. Such genius is on display in Serena Foster’s cover of the Nancy Sinatra classic, ‘These Boots Are Made For Walkin’.’ It comes through Serena Foster gritty and dark. It's cinematic and expansive. The high slow strings in the back, pads of space and minimal percussion add miles of depth. The tempo is slowed, the emphasis tightened. The scale is immense and the presence is daunting. ‘These Boots Are Made For Walkin’’ becomes a wild and dangerous soundscape, one that excites and works its magic in the shadows.

Serena Foster has mastered the art of the cover. You can feel it in the music, it feels like hers because it is. This is a completely new song born from another. There’s nothing covered about it, it’s on display for the world to see.
