NEONFLY have released via YouTube an acoustic cover of the iconic chart-topping 80s power ballad “Alone” originally released by i-Ten, and most notably performed by Heart on their 1987 album “Bad Animals”. The song, with an accompanying self-shot and self-edited video, is the final release of a 10-part series of fan-picked acoustic covers that Neonfly recorded earlier this year during the COVID-19 lockdown in London.
Over the past few months, Neonfly have treated their fans to covers of artists as varied as Iron Maiden, Frank Zappa, Edguy, Marillion, The Righteous Brothers and Joe Cocker, to name but a few.
The covers were picked by fans last year as part of a highly successful crowdfunding campaign that helped to finance Neonfly’s upcoming 3rd album, “The Future Tonight” with Grammy-Award nominated producer Romesh Dodangoda (Motorhead, Bring Me The Horizon, Funeral for a Friend) and Miro Rodenberg (Avantasia) on keys and orchestral arrangements.
With this final acoustic release, Neonfly also teased their fans on social media mentioning that they had a big surprise planned for very early next year, which involved “turning the amps back on”, hinting at the fact that they’d soon be ready to release the new music everyone’s been waiting for.
