Susan Boyle expecting criticism from rock fans over John Lennon and Pink Floyd covers

The singer's renditions of 'Imagine' and 'Wish You Were Here' will appear on her forthcoming sixth album 'Hope'

Susan Boyle has said she is expecting fans of Pink Floyd and John Lennon to “criticise” her covers of their songs.

The Britain’s Got Talent singer has recorded her own version of Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish You Were Here’ as well as Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ on her sixth album ‘Hope’, which is released on November 24.

“I hope I have done them justice in my own way,” she said (via The Herald). “John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ was one of the hardest to record, not because of the music or the vocals but because I wanted to do his song justice. Of course the die-hard Lennon fans will probably criticise but I hope that people like my personal take on the song.”

“I themed this album around inspiration and hope because those are two elements we all need in our life to drive us forward and inspire us to go out and capture our dreams – they worked for me.”

Boyle has previously covered The Rolling Stones, Lou Reed, Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell.
