Sky Ferreira Regains Her Soundcloud Account & Releases ‘Voices Carry’ Cover

Sky Ferreira Voices Carry

Yes, yes, it’s been 84 years since we last heard from Sky Ferreira.

But like Fighters loyally awaiting the return of Legend X, we – the Sky Squad, the Night Timers, the Masochists, the Little Ferreirasters – patiently endure.

And at long last, we’ve been #blessed with a thing.

Many moons ago, Sky recorded a cover of “Voices Carry,” the 1985 hit by ‘Til Tuesday. She’s performed it live before, but had yet to unleash any form of a studio version online.

Until now.

After battling with Soundcloud to regain access to her own account which was previously taken over by her label – even though I really should have DMed her and reminded her that the password is “everything!$embarrassing” – she’s celebrating regaining entry with the release of the “Infant Demo” version of her cover.

Here’s what Sky has to say about it:

“Hi! Thanks to my fans & soundcloud for helping me get my login back so quickly. I wanted to post something now that it’s back in my hands. Here’s a cover of ~Voices Carry~. I’ve played it live a few times this year. It’s always been one of my favorite songs but it’s kind of deeply personal to me,lyrically. I recorded this in one day when a engineer had a room at Sunset Sound available.He let me use the studio for free as a favor, some of my friends came in and played the bass/guitar/drums for me after calling them 45 minutes before asking if they could try playing random stuff for me to work with/write on. Nobody has produced it (except me… I guess but this version isn’t produced or mixed.It also doesn’t have the synths & guitars I added today. I am out of the country so my computer keeps crashing.)I didn’t want to wait until I was back to upload something. I have no idea what this sounds like in speakers either lol. This is what I call the infant demo because it’s basically the scratch demo since it hasn’t really been worked on & what not. It’s also the only thing I can post without getting in trouble by other people involved on other songs.I promise I will be posting a lot more stuff on here & will let you know more about my album. I always feel a lot more comfortable sharing music related things here instead of Instagram etc. thanks for the support. I will give you one hint about one of my first two singles: There’s a fire on your street. x Sky”

First of all, the cover is gorg (obviously), and totally brings on the Skystalgia and only adds to the yearning for more (moah) – not that any of that’s a surprise.

More deliciously, she’s provided a tease of that new new at the very end of her message to the fans: “I will give you one hint about one of my first two singles: There’s a fire on your street.

More waiting? Yes, but hush, hush: this is our choice. We’re here. We remain here. We blame ourselves for our reputation.
