Corey Hart’s 1984 US top ten Sunglasses at Night gets an unlikely cover from German fashion icon Heidi Klum and Dutch DJ Tiësto. The track will be used as the theme for Germany’s Next Top Model and is released through Warner Music Central Europe.
Heidi sounds seductively hypnotic on the number which sees her deliver the track’s dreamy lyrics, against Tiësto’s powerhouse beats. Heidi shares: “I was thinking about the moment in the middle of the night at a party when you have been up way too late, your makeup has melted off, you are sweaty and cross-eyed, and all you crave is a pair of sunglasses.” She adds: “This scene reminded me of the iconic 80s hit, Corey Hart’s Sunglasses at Night. I am beyond ecstatic that I was able to remix and re-record this track with my EDM hero Tiësto. What an honour!“
Tiësto notes: “Heidi is a great friend so naturally it was a lot of fun to work on this one together! We were hanging out when she shared her idea to remake the original 80’s hit and I wanted to help her on the production! I love how the track turned out and I’m super excited for her and this release.” Whilst original artist Corey Hart revealed his enthusiasm about the cover version: “Superstar Heidi Klum covering “Sunglasses At Night” is like a seductive supernova dance explosion on the bright side of the moon!”
Sunglasses at Night is a true banger and has confirmed that Heidi Klum undoubtedly has a cracking pop album within her. Also check out Chai Tea with Heidi if you haven’t already.
