ASHTON IRWIN has released an acoustic rendition of Nirvana’s ‘Heart-Shaped Box’.
First performing the cover on his livestream performance, where he played debut album ‘Superbloom‘ in full, Irwin spoke about covering the hit: “‘Heart-Shaped Box’ is lined with one of the most beautiful melodies wrapped in barbed wire. Kurt Cobain’s mastery is being respected in my cover in many ways. One of them being, I by no means tried to sing it like him, I gave it my own take. I shot this cover at home with my partner Kay Kay. We wanted something that looked like “pop / grunge” with the feeling of a sinister empty room to represent the feeling of codependency.“
