“I love to sing all kinds of music,” McBride told Billboard about “Everlasting,” her album of pop and R&B standards that hits stores next week. Hear the album in full right now.
Today (Feb. 13), McBride released one of the tracks on her forthcoming covers album, Everlasting. She puts her soulful spin on Elvis Presley’s monster 1968 hit “Suspicious Minds,” complete with bright horns and back-up singers.
“I love soulful music and it just made sense to me to stretch a bit at this time and do something that fills my heart and allows me to explore a little bit,” she said of her upcoming album.
“While this is a bit of a departure for me song-wise, stylistically I approached these songs the way I always have, which is singing with as much soul and emotion as I possibly can.”
