Roseanne Reid Releases Her New Single & Video Covering Dua Lipa’s ‘Hallucinate’21st January 2022
Leith-born, Scotland-based, rising star in Americana ,singer-songwriter Roseanne Reid today releases her husky, haunting, acoustic cover of Dua Lipa’s ‘Hallucinate’.
Roseanne is releasing the single to coincide with her tour with Teddy Thompson.
She describes the original as one of her favourite songs of 2021: “On the Dua Lipa album, — written by Dua Lipa with Sophie Cook and Samuel Lewis — it had the feel of something beautiful, mellow and heartfelt.”
Roseanne transformed the song via an acoustic arrangement and reflects “After messing around with it acoustically, we needed some richness which my mate Graham Coe brought with the cello. Loved how it turned out, so I am releasing it to coincide with my UK tour, supporting the great Teddy Thompson. We shot a video in the studio which turned out great.”
Roseanne’s version of the song is chilled and haunting, weaving and bending together the distinctive timbre of her guitar and subtly smoky vocals with the expressive cello playing of Graham Coe.
The shot-in-studio video is mostly no-frills, black and white, with some dreamy kaleidoscopic visuals that resonate with the lyrics’ motif of hallucination. It’s elegant in its simplicity and enables the viewer to really appreciate the timbre and calibre of Roseanne’s vocals, the resonant fullness of the cello, and take in the song — both on its own and in contrast to the Dua Lipa original.
Americana legend Steve Earle describes Roseanne as “an outstanding songwriter” and repeatedly invites her to his annual songwriting retreat and also provided vocals on Roseanne’s track ‘Sweet Annie’ on her previous album ‘Trails’, producing what The Times Culture called “heart-stopping… but not the only high point of a stunningly mature set of Americana from a young Scottish singer.”
Check out Roseanne Reid via this beautifully sung and evocative song and its accompanying video, and on tour with Teddy Thompson. ‘Hallucinate’ is now out on all digital platforms via Last Man Music from Friday 21st January 2022.
