Watch Girl In Red’s pop-punk cover of The Weeknd’s ‘Save Your Tears’

She also delivered an impassioned performance of recent single 'Rue'

Girl In Red has delivered her own take on The Weeknd‘s 2020 single ‘Save Your Tears’ for a live session – check it out below.

Performing with a full band, the fast-rising Norwegian musician turned the synth-pop original into a gritty, high-energy pop-punk track.

‘Save Your Tears’ was originally released last year as the fourth single to be taken from The Weeknd’s blockbuster fourth LP ‘After Hours’, and received a music video in January this year.

Elsewhere in the session, Girl In Red performed a live version of ‘Rue’, the lead track from her forthcoming debut album which was announced last August.

Speaking about her plans for the debut album in January, she said: “There’s some crazy shit going down on this album. I can tell you that for sure.”

“I’m doing things I’ve never done before. It’s a very, very ambitious album,” she added, promising that the album will feature similar styles to her earlier work “except way, way cooler”: “This is some grown, 2.0 shit.”

The NME 100 alumni and previous Big Read cover star returned with the huge Finneas-produced new single ‘Serotonin‘ earlier this month, along with details of her hotly anticipated debut album ‘If I Could Make It Go Quiet’.

Recent years have seen Girl In Red release a string of singles and EPs – with ‘Chapter One’ and ‘Chapter Two’ collected together and released on vinyl as the ‘Beginnings’ compilation in 2019. Back in December, she released the one-off Christmas single ‘Two Queens In A King-sized Bed‘.

Last week, meanwhile, the singer announced details of a UK and European tour for 2022, which will see her hit Glasgow, Dublin, London and Manchester as well as the continent.
