Jess Knights releases new single, “Cover Your Eyes”

Calgary’s Jess Knights has a new single out called “Cover Your Eyes”.

The prairie-raised soul singer’s latest single is off of her upcoming full-length record, Best Kind of Light, which is due out May 20.

“Cover Your Eyes” sees Knights exploring the darker side of human nature that causes people to turn a blind eye to the evils of the world.

Here is Knights speaking about the track:

“The lyrics began as a criticism of myself. I would walk past an emergency shelter every day on my way to work. Some days, I would engage with the people outside of the shelter, and other days I would put on my headphones, pull down my sunglasses, and try not see or be seen. It made me think of all the scenarios in life where we turn a blind eye. For better or worse, it seems to be something that humans do as a coping mechanism or survival method. I’m hoping this song won’t be perceived as a criticism, but rather a wake-up call.”

Jess Knights has a show lined up in Calgary on March 14 at cSpace King Edward.
