Lauren Jenkins releases two Bruce Springsteen covers with 'Hungry Heart' and 'Stolen Car'

Lauren Jenkins has opted to release two covers from Bruce Springsteen’s fabled ‘The River’ album in Hungry Heart and Stolen Car. You can listen to the tracks here.
The two covers represent the first pieces of new music the Texas born artist since her critically acclaimed album ‘No Saint’ was released in March 2019 and fans will be hoping that new material isn’t too far away.
Speaking about the covers, Jenkins said that while she very rarely delves into covering other artists’ work, she will make exceptions for songs she believes to be of the highest quality, while also explaining that storytelling is what draws her to a song.
“I’m a sucker for a storyteller,” Jenkins said. “Tell me a story about your joy, pain, love or loss and I’m in. That’s part of the reason why I have such a deep appreciation for Bruce Springsteen. He has a way of telling a story that feels like it’s your story, too. Honesty and vulnerability seem to be at the core and that’s something I try to mirror in my own music.
“I don’t do covers often, but when I do, it better be a damn good song. Stolen Car and Hungry Heart have been part of the soundtrack to my life and I’m so excited to share my take on them. If you haven’t heard their creator singing these songs, do yourself a favour and go listen to Springsteen now.”
Meanwhile, Jenkins will be returning to the UK for the first time since The Long Road Festival in early February as she will be supporting Brett Eldredge on his UK tour.
Lauren Jenkins will be playing:
January 31 – Cambridge Junction, Cambridge, England*
February 1 – Institute, Birmingham, England*
February 3 – Ritz, Manchester, England*
February 4 – Old Fruitmarket, Glasgow, Scotland*
February 7 – O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London, England*
