Stacey Jackson Covers Foreigner's “Urgent”
- London-based singer-songwriter Stacey Jackson released a cover of British-American rock band Foreigner's “Urgent” on July 8, 2022.
The song will appear on her upcoming EP, which is expected to be released later this fall. The EP will be composed of original ‘80s inspired tracks.
The original version of the song was released by Foreigner from their fourth studio album “4” in 1981. The track was written by Mick Jones.
Stacey Jackson said of the song, “I’m so excited to put out a brand-new dance record this summer! With most of the world opened up again I think people are geared up to dance and party so I thought it would be fun to create a dance track of a record that holds a special place in my heart. My originals are largely inspired by 1980s songs — given that I grew up in that era. I love the band Foreigner for many reasons and I especially love “Urgent“ which originally came out when I was 12!”
She continued, “But I specifically chose that song because I wanted to make the people on the dance floor this summer feel the way I felt when it first came out in 1981. I love the melody and I’m super pumped up to perform it this summer at festivals and prides.”
