Watch Sierra Ferrell Flawlessly Covers Sam Cooke’s “Cupid”

Fully convinced Sierra Ferrell can cover anything at this point.

In honor of Valentine’s Day last week, Sierra Ferrell’s artistic mind curated a cupid-inspired short film with Mirror Mirror Network.

Sam Cooke originally sang “Cupid” in 1961, and his soulful vocals coat listeners’ ears as he sings the tender lyrics, hoping Cupid helps him find his love. Ferrell does a flawless cover, leaning into a different side of her sound.

As we are used to her belting out folk anthems with powerful vocals, this cover highlights her dynamic voice. On tracks like “Why’d You Do It,” we see the soulful, bluesy influence in her songs, but covers like this show that she can do more than be inspired by the genre.

While I am so excited for Ferrell’s forthcoming album, Trail Of Flowers, hearing covers like this makes me want to hear more soul records from her, or I hope she hits the studio to make her dream surf rock album.

Check out the interview clip from last fall where Ferrell spoke about her dream record…I didn’t know I needed a Sierra Ferrell surf rock album till she put the thought in my head.

Now I can’t get it out…
