While 2020 has brought countless challenges for many, singer-songwriter Sarah Darling shows no signs of slowing down with the release of new music. The Iowa native has released a unique cover of the 2010 Katy Perry hit, “California Gurls,” available now.
Her distinctive spin on the song, produced by Cheyenne Medders, is the latest installment of Darling’s Campfire Sessions, a series of stripped-down covers that embody the idea of sitting around a campfire with a guitar and close friends.
Darling first launched Campfire Sessions in October 2019, initially covering classic country songs that influenced her current sound as an artist. When the world unexpectedly shut down in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Campfire Sessions remained a great way for Darling to stay connected with her fan base.
After realizing Campfire Sessions could also highlight her musical influences outside of the country genre, the talented singer decided to record and release the infectious pop-hit she’s long admired, “California Gurls.”
Having already established herself after earning the #1 country album slot on the UK Official Charts with her previous album, Wonderland, Darling looks forward to the release of new music in early 2021.
