“RUNNIN’ WITH THE DEVIL” LIKE YOU NEVER HEARD IT BEFORE
Singer-Songwriter Jennifer Hope Makes Her Rhino Debut With An Ethereal Version Of The Van Halen Classic
Available Now From Rhino
LOS ANGELES – Jennifer Hope makes her Rhino Records debut as the singer-songwriter puts her own dark twist on Van Halen’s “Runnin’ With The Devil.”
Guitarist Eddie Van Halen – who played on the original – is an early fan. “When I heard Jennifer’s ‘trailer remix’ version, I was blown away. It is a very powerful, unique approach, and I couldn’t have done better myself!”
“I was inspired to create and record my version of 'RWTD' because I knew it would challenge me in new ways,” says Jennifer Hope. “I re-imagined the song with a mood and vibe that is significantly unlike the original. Continuing to evolve artistically is an important factor in my creative process, along with expressing the message within the song.”
Hope’s rendition of “Runnin’ With The Devil” along with a remixed version of the song as a two-track digital single is available on all major digital platforms for $1.99.
The song was produced by Hope and Matt Emonson with additional production by Warren Huart (Aerosmith, The Fray, James Blunt). Huart also produced two of Hope’s recent releases, Velvet Fire (LP) and X-Tremities (EP).
Based in Los Angeles, Hope started out recording gothic and dark-wave music as an independent artist. Over time, her sound has grown more diverse as she’s embraced more alt-rock influences. The sonic landscapes of her songs may have shifted, but Hope’s ethereal, dream-pop vocals remain at the core of her distinctive sound.
Fans are invited to listen to the songs here.
