Poppy has released a cover of Tatu’s 2002 hit, “All the Things She Said,” for Pride Month.
The faithful rendition dropped alongside a black-and-white video which features the singer performing in a small, padded room. “I keep asking myself, wondering how / I keep closing my eyes but I can’t block you out / Want to fly to a place where it’s just you and me / Nobody else so we can be free,” she sings.
“This cover song was delivered to my label over two weeks ago, with the purpose of being released in time for Pride Month,” Poppy wrote in the video’s YouTube description. “Unfortunately, in the time elapsed since then, we’ve been faced with a tragedy that calls for our much needed attention.”
“While we are still fighting for equality in the LGBTQ+ community, we still have a long way to go, and there still remains an absurd amount of injustice for minorities in America,” she added. “I cannot adequately express my distain [sic] for how our government, and above all, our president is reacting to what’s happening in America right now. I encourage you to educate yourself, go out and protest, donate, and raise your voice to speak out against this injustice.”
