Nikka Costa is back.
The American singer, who last released a full-length album in 2008, has now shared her take on the Prince classic ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’.
The first single of her forthcoming LP ‘Nikka & Strings, Underneath and In Between’ is available to download and stream now.
“I’m really excited to have recorded the new album with a rhythm section and a string quartet,” says Costa of the album due later this year.
“I have some songs I’ve always wanted to record with this line up and make into a very special album featuring this music I love. I grew up surrounded by orchestras and it’s music that is close to my heart.
“The new album features some standards, some unexpected covers and some of my own new material written especially for this project.”
