DEVORA – “Elvis” new version released
Outlaw-pop extraordinaire DEVORA, today returns with the stripped-back, acoustic version of her highly praised single “Elvis” (Tiger Tone/[PIAS]). The acoustic track sees DEVORA’s vocals take center stage and her lyrics become more poignant than ever. Emboldened by sparse, western instrumentation and gorgeous steel guitar by the legendary Abe Levy (El Vez, Dustbowl Revival, West of Texas), the acoustic version is a gorgeous addition to DEVORA’s repertoire, showcasing a side that’s more raw and vulnerable than we’ve seen before.
The new track is accompanied by a western-inspired visualizer, shot out in the Anza-Borrego desert near San Diego. Check it out HERE.
Speaking on the acoustic track and visual, DEVORA shares
“Elvis is a song that conjures all feelings of nostalgia for me. Both the good and the bad. I wanted to capture the all-encompassing glow and warmth that one feels when they hear their favorite song on the radio; a song that floods us with memories from a distant time and place. Music has the power to make us remember and can take us back to the exact time and place of a memory; memories of a relationship, a place, a feeling, a moment in time.
Music also has the power to help us forget and transport us to moments in the past. A song can feel like a beacon of hope for many, and I really wanted to illustrate the feeling of turning the radio on, hearing “that” song; YOUR song that gives you solace, and being left with the feeling that no matter what, everything is going to be ok. This acoustic version of “Elvis” really instills the emotional imagery, and the lap steel (played by Abe Levy) and acoustic guitar (played/ produced by Tony Hoffer) really carries you away; top-down and radio blaring on a dusty desert dirt road”
