Aoife O’Donovan Releases Cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Nebraska”

Announces Songs and Strings 2020 Tour

Critically lauded musician and songstress  Aoife O’Donovan has released  “Nebraska,” a cover of the title track from Bruce Springsteen’s 1982 album  via Yep Roc Records. The track is featured on In The Magic Hour Solo Sessions, a six-song acoustic EP including four songs from In The Magic Hour and a bone-chilling cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Turn Me On, I’m A Radio,” out November 1.

“In 2011, I did a residency at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC, says Aoife. “Each week was a different set, and while planning for the month, I decided to learn the album “Nebraska” from start to finish. Originally released in 1982, the year I was born, the songs are timeless. The sadness and depravity in the title track urge us to look a little bit deeper into ourselves. “I guess there’s just a meanness in this world.”  

Aoife will embark on the Songs and Strings Tour in spring 2020, performing with a string quartet featuring Jeremy Kittlel on violin – a full list of dates is below. As the first Artist-in-Residence at this year’s FreshGrass Festival, Aoife performed with two different string quartets.
