Lucia share piano cover of Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus’ ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’

Featuring Millie from The Ninth Wave

Lucia have shared a stripped-back cover of Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus‘ ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’. Check out the video below.

The singer and guitarist from the rising Scottish indie outfit teamed up with Millie Kidd of The Ninth Wave to offer up an intimate, piano-led rendition of Ronson’s 2019 smash.

Titled ‘Cover Girls #1’, the post serves as the first part in a series of performances. Writing in the caption to the black and white video, Lucia revealed her fondness for expressing herself through another artist’s work.

When I was younger and before I was writing my own music I learnt how to play guitar (badly) and sing by learning songs that I liked. As amazing as it is to be able to voice yourself through writing lyrics it’s also really cool when you can express yourself through someone else’s! There are so many amazing female fronted bands/ artists and I’m lucky to know quite a few who’s words & performances continuously charm and inspire me, that I’d like you to know about. So here is my first – Millie from @theninthwave Cover: Nothing breaks like a heart Mark Ronson ft Miley Cyrus It’s took us about 20 times to get it right and then we realised Millie’s face got chopped out :)))))))

Speaking of her decision to team up with Kidd for the first cover, she explained: “There are so many amazing female-fronted bands/ artists and I’m lucky to know quite a few whose words & performances continuously charm and inspire me, that I’d like you to know about. So here is my first.

“It took us about 20 times to get it right and then we realised Millie’s face got chopped out.”

Lucia featured in the NME 100 2019 list at the end of last year and released the single ‘Blueheart’ back in February. NME described the cut as “a soaring rock heartbreaker that’s a visceral antidote to Valentines Day schmaltz.”

Earlier this year, Lizzo also performed a cover of the ‘Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’ collaboration in Radio 1’s Live Lounge. In June, Ronson and Cyrus performed the song together during the latter’s Glastonbury 2019 appearance.
