September 27, 2019: Today, New York singer-songwriter Raveena released her Amazon Original cover of “Lovers Rock” by Sade, available to stream and purchase only on Amazon Music.
“Sade’s timeless and sensual sound has always been a big influence on my music,” says Raveena, “Covering one of my favorite songs by her, ‘Lovers Rock,’ was such a delight.”
Raveena first debuted in 2017 with her EP Shanti which Pitchfork called “radiant” and Harper’s Bazaar called “sublime.” She’s been described by The Fader as having a “voice like liquid gold” and NPR Music described her sound as “comforting but nuanced, balancing cultures old and new by mashing up contemporary R&B with traditions from the South Asian diaspora.” Earlier this year she released her full length debut Lucid via Moonstone Recordings. A standout track from the album ‘Stronger’ has even been featured in The New York Times and The Fader while Pitchfork said the song ‘Petal’ “ends the album on a euphoric note, wrapping layered vocals into a cocoon that’s delicate and full like a peony bloom.”
Amazon Music listeners can find the new track on the playlist, “The High End” providing top shelf vibes from R&B, indie, and beyond. Customers can also simply ask, “Alexa play the Amazon Original by Raveena” in the Amazon app for iOS and Android and on Alexa-enabled devices. In addition to Raveena, Amazon Music listeners can access hundreds of Amazon Originals featuring both emerging and established artists across numerous genres, available to stream and purchase only on Amazon Music.
