Amy MacDonald today reveals her version of the 4 Non Blondes classic ‘What’s Up?’, which she has released as an Amazon Original and is accompanied by a black-and-white performance video. Listen HERE. Watch HERE
While the original song was first released in 1992, her performance of the song feels like a natural extension of the themes she explored in last year’s Top 10 album ‘The Human Demands’. Her impassioned vocal acutely captures the feeling of having found your place in the world and the frustration of longing for a societal change that may never come.
4 Non Blondes’ original version of ‘What’s Up?’ peaked at #2 in the UK during an eight week run in the Top 10. It was written by Linda Perry, who went on to become one of the world’s most successful songwriters, with credits for Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, Pink, Adele and many more.
‘What’s Up?’ is released ahead of Amy’s long awaited return to touring, which begins with a homecoming festival at Glasgow’s TRNSMT. Her October headline tour culminates at London’s historic Roundhous
