The magnificent SHARON VAN ETTEN shared her affecting cover of HURT, the gripping ballad by industrial rockers NINE INCH NAILS from their 1994 album The Downward Spiral.

Van Etten covered the song for a special reason: “I recently spoke with Sounds Of Saving and performed a cover of “Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails. Sounds Of Saving is an organization aiming to reduce our country’s suicide rate, an effort I care deeply about.”

Here’s her short interview with Sounds Of Saving and her magical performance of Hurt

Fresh Amplified Pop Project LIFEBOATS Debuts With Swirling Humdinger ‘HURT’…

New sonic impulses

3 February 2020

LIFEBOATS is a fresh collaboration started by Prod (songwriter, instrumentalist and creative force behind the bands Flow and Airstar from in the nineties to the teenies)
with Austrian urban songsmith Rena. Their debut single HURT is “a positive message of transcending adversity leaving the listener ready to stand up to all the world throws at them.”

‘Hurt’ has all the right sonic ingredients of a tremendously contagious pop song. An irresistible tunefulness, an arresting melody, an elevating rhythm, flaming guitars, tantalizing vocals and a stimulating chorus. Trust me, you’ll be hooked after one spin.
