Fresh from being revealed as Australia’s Eurovision entrant for 2016, Dami Im has today confirmed that she’ll release her new album ‘Classic Carpenters’ late next month.
As you’ll glean from the title, the album is a collection of cover versions of some of The Carpenters’ biggest songs, including ‘There’s A Kind Of Hush’, ‘Rainy Days And Mondays’, ‘Close To You’ and ‘Yesterday Once More’.
“My intention wasn’t to copy Karen Carpenter’s voice or her tone,” Dami explains. “Our voices naturally sound so different, so I tried to bring out the joy and the innocence in the songs while trying to sing them as honest and raw as I could as Dami.
“With this album and through my live performances, I hope to be remembered as the girl who is a real musician at heart who speaks truthfully through her craft.”
‘Classic Carpenters’ will be released on Friday April 22.
