The Wandering Hearts share their stunning rendition of Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus’ ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’, out now.
Grabbing the listener from the very first note, the track opens with the band’s trademark harmonies at the forefront, accompanied by stripped back guitar. Firmly stamping their mark on this pop favourite, they have transformed the song into something that is unmistakably The Wandering Hearts.
Speaking of the track, the band say, “When we first heard Mark and Miley’s ‘Nothing Breaks Like a Heart’, we all loved it and thought it would be cool to do our own version. You can hear the traditional country influence on the song and given Miley’s relationship with Dolly, we had the idea to include a subtle nod to Jolene. The songs fit together so well, lyrically and sonically – we love how traditional music influences the contemporary world.
We recorded our reimagined version at The Premises in east London, which is our second home. We really enjoyed working on our arrangement and we had such a special time in the studio with the song – we think that really shines through in what you hear.”
