WATCH: Corey Hart Shares Reworked 'Never Surrender'
The COVID-19 pandemic has inspired Canadian singer Corey Hart to rework his signature anthem “Never Surrender.”
“Aspirational dreams of youth coupled with naïve, unaffected simplicity led me to write a song called ‘Never Surrender’ some 35 years ago,” Hart explained, in a release. “Today as I gaze out onto the uncertain sea of change, I'm reminded of the kind, resilient people in our world who keep moving forward with steely determination and steady stride — that yes indeed, ‘just a little more time is all we’re asking for.’
“Since the pandemic surfaced, I have received so many heartfelt messages from people all over the world telling me how much ‘Never Surrender’ inspires them. It spurred me on to release a reworked version of the original song.”
“Never Surrender (Angels) 2020," featuring Rob Wells on piano, was recorded in Bahamas, where Hart lives. It comes with a video directed by his wife, singer Julie Masse.
The original version, released in 1985, won Single of the Year at the Junos and spent four weeks at the top of the Canadian chart.
