Derek Simpson celebrates upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, The Zombies, with "Her Song" (3/21/19)
After a string of original singles, Derek Simpson shares a delicate, sultry cover of Colin Blunstone's (The Zombies) "Her Song."
I originally heard this song while I was doing some research on The Zombies in 2017. Stumbling upon Blunstone's debut album was such a joy as there are so many under-appreciated pieces on there: Misty Roses, Caroline Goodbye, and I Can't Live Without You just to name a few. First hearing "Her Song" brought me to tears. After a year I felt the pull to record my own cover as a gift to my girlfriend. Though this is not necessarily a tune by The Zombies, I felt that this would be appropriate to release as a celebration of them since three members of the band (Rod Argent, Chris White, and Colin Blunstone) worked on the original song together.
Derek Simpson's version of “Her Song” is out 3/21 on Trailing Twelve.
The Zombies will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on March 29th, 2019.)
