Drake Jensen has partnered with Lisa Thompson to release a cover of Corey Hart’s iconic hit song “Never Surrender”. This release is dedicated to all the front-line workers that helped us all through this challenging year.
“Never Surrender” is an iconic song that takes a brave artist to cover … and Drake Jensen delivers! It’s a great version of the song, that brings this 80s hit into the 21st century. Drake is able to showcase his vocal talent here with a pinch of nostalgia.
The track will be the lead single to his upcoming album, ICONIC, set to be released later this year. ICONIC will include covers of iconic Canadian songs from Lennie Gallant, Gordon Lightfoot, Anne Murray, Leonard Cohen, and Rita MacNeil. Songs that Drake grew up with.
Drake Jensen has become a pioneer in the Canadian country music industry. As one of the industry’s few openly gay artists, he has made it his mission to bridge the gap between the LGBTQ Community and Country Music. He loves to collaborate with and help promote other LGBTQ artists.
Drake Jensen and Lisa Thompson also released a music video to help support their version of “Never Surrender“. It’s a great video that was filmed in Western Quebec.
This song is wonderful. We can’t wait to hear the rest of the songs being included in his upcoming album. Be sure to stream “Never Surrender” on Apple Music and Spotify.
