Listen to Romy’s cover of ‘The Rhythm of the Night’ and ‘You’re Not Alone’ for a special Pride live session


Romy covered Corona’s “The Rhythm of the Night” and Olive’s “You’re Not Alone” for a special live session for Apple Music to celebrate Pride 2021.

The guitarist and solo musician of xx has mixed the two tracks together as part of a new three-song set for the streaming service which went live today (July 9).

Romy said in an accompanying statement that “The Rhythm of The Night” and “You’re Not Alone” “reminds me of when I was around 17 and started hanging out with gay bars in London.”

“The lyrics to ‘You’re Not Alone’ resonate with the sense of community that I have found in these bars and clubs and the friends that I have made and cherish to this day,” she added. “I still love dancing to ‘The Rhythm of the Night’ and I have always loved the lyrics and the melody. It was fun to strip those dance songs to their hearts and still feel so much emotion. “

In addition to the covers, Romy’s new Apple Music ensemble also includes acoustic renditions of her 2020 solo single “Lifetime” and “Angels” by The xx.

“This pride, I reflect and educate myself on the amazing people who fought and continue to fight to make the world a safer and more open-minded place for the LGBTQ community,” Romy added. “There is still so much work to be done to protect and empower our community.

“I am proud to be a lesbian, for me pride exists all year round, not just for a month or a day.”

In December, Romy shared a series of “Lifetime” remixes which were directed by Jayda G, HAAi and Planningtorock.
