Nikki Yanofsky takes in some beach scenery while recording her cover of The Beatles‘ “Oh! Darling” in Venice Beach, Calif.
“I’m a huge fan of The Beatles. Like a huge, huge fan,” the 19-year-old Canadian singer shared with ELLE mag. “And I think that song is just like a classic blues song. It really walks the line of what I do—singing bluesy and jazzy songs.
She adds, “I thought it would be a really cool song to re-do, especially from a girl’s perspective. Because Paul McCartney, when he sang it, he sounded almost so desperate that I wanted to get the girl’s side of things.”
Nikki also shared about her new album, out on October 7th in the US, “I feel like I’ve grown a lot as a person since my first record. I recorded it from ages 14-16. In those four years since then, I feel like I did a lot of self-discovery. It’s a never-ending process. But my main goal is to be happy. I want to just put out something that I feel represents me. Just keep chasing the good music.”
