Sofia Valdés has shared her take on Gwen Stefani's 'The Sweetest Escape'.
The Panama-born riser us making waves, with recent singles 'Handful Of Water' and 'Little Did I Know' stamping out her identity.
Opting for something cute, Sofia has delivered a dreamy take on a song penned by one of her heroines.
Gwen Stefani's 'The Sweetest Escape' is re-tooled, with the neat garage-pop arrangement shot through with some bossa nova inflections.
A nod to her roots, it finds Sofia Valdés tapping into her love of music and displaying her skill as an interpreter.
“I decided to record ‘The Sweet Escape’ because I thought it would be fun to take something so different than my style and make it my own. I grew up knowing the song pretty well, since my mom would play it in the car a lot. She would blast the song with the windows down. I would get furious because I was super sensitive to loud sounds and wind would make my hair messy, I wassix. But it’s now such a sweet memory.”
