On July 17, MCA Nashville will release David Nail‘s 1979, a digital-only three song EP that includes Nail’s buzzed-about cover of Adele’s “Someone Like You,” as well as “The Sound of a Million Dreams” and “Half Mile Hill,” from The Sound of a Million Dreams. Named for the year Nail was born, the EP is stripped down with a live approach. It will be available for download on iTunes.
“It’s hard to believe the life that ‘Someone Like You’ has taken on,” Nail says. “It’s proof that people hunger for great songs – and they are open to different interpretations of songs they love… And then it’s being played by Blair Garner, added at CMT and even talked about by a pop radio station in New York! With all that, and people continuing to ask, we met with the label and asked what they could do. 1979 was their response.”
