Donna Marie Songs is just a week and change from releasing her final single of the year – a poignant cover of Nothing Ever Happens. Originally released by Scottish band Del Amitri in 1989, the song has perhaps never been more relevant than today. It’s another timely release from Donna, following This World earlier in the year. For her final release of the year, this jack-of-all-musical-trades delivers a moving reminder that if we don’t take a stand, no one will.
Capping off a prolific year – which has seen Donna produce not just her own music, but produce and contribute to releases for many other artists – this classic folk-rock cover couldn’t be more appropriate. Donna has produced it beautifully – simply, with acoustic guitars and haunting layered harmonies. It’s an inspired song choice and oh-so-appropriate for 2020. It’s a live look-in at the state of the world and in this one song, Donna manages to convey all of the pain, frustration and heartache we’ve all been feeling.
NOTHING EVER HAPPENS will be available to stream and download from 18th December. Pre-save it here. Follow Donna on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter, subscribe to her Youtube channel or visit her website.
