Serbian-Canadian musician, Dana Gavanski has unveiled a video for her new single, “At Last I Am Free”. The single is from her upcoming covers EP, Wind Songs. Originally written by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards, plus an accompanying video directed by Nuha Ruby Ra.
Dana explains her reasons for choosing this track to cover:
“Originally written and performed by Chic, I first heard it covered by Robert Wyatt not long ago. It’s in part a break up song, but it goes beyond that. There’s something beautiful about the ambiguity of the song. The verses are quite personal, and then there’s this huge, ecstatic yet melancholy chorus. I love Robert Wyatt’s version of it too. His wizardly voice and that lead synth line that give it a special edge. It’s a big tune.”
