Sometimes if I see a new song that’s titled the same as a popular song, I’ll think “that would be great if it was a cover”, but they rarely are. Until now.

The cover is actually the first in a series of covers Wil is planning to release, saying they will be a collection of “songs that truly impacted or moved me no matter the genre they were born from. And so, consider this project my way of paying homage to the original artists whose music inspired me ... an endeavour that I hope continues onward as I am and have always been a true fan of all types of music."
