Melanie Masson releases northern soul twist of Future Islands’ iconic hit ‘Seasons (Waiting on You)’

Series 9 X Factor finalist Melanie Masson releases her new single ‘Seasons‘ into the wild. Following in the footsteps of her exceptional debut cover of Beyoncé’s ‘Why Don’t You Love Me?’, her second single ‘Seasons’ is also a cover; this time Melanie puts her unforgettable twist on Future Islands’ anthem ‘Seasons (Waiting on You)’.

The artist has already received praise from the band themselves, with bass player William Cashion hailing it as ‘a beautiful version’. Produced by renowned producer Tristan Longworth, ‘Seasons’ is armed with a northern soul arrangement that will leave you dancing around your house.

“I loved the melody and lyrics to Seasons and really connected to it. It felt very reflective yet optimistic and that’s the mood I wanted to create for the video. I wanted to send out a positive message. It feels like we’re all in the same challenging situation right now. We all have our struggles, our ups and down but there’s always hope. It’s about hanging on to what’s important, taking strength from that and holding onto the belief that better days are coming. It’s a message to everyone to hang on in there.” – Melanie Masson

A soulful rendition that lives up to the original, Melanie Masson’s ‘Seasons’ is warm and feels like summer’s come early.
