SAINT ASONIA, the hard rock act featuring former THREE DAYS GRACE singer Adam Gontier and STAIND guitarist Mike Mushok, have released their cover version of “Blinding Lights” originally done by R&B artist The Weeknd.
According to the official press release, the track is “like a mashup of both artist’s sounds and it finds SAINT ASONIA fearlessly trying new things, while putting their distinct stamp on the track, making it their own.”
Regarding how SAINT ASONIA arrived at the decision to cover The Weeknd song, Adam Gontier says: “It’s always interesting deciding on a song to cover. In this case, I just wanted to do something that people wouldn’t necessarily expect. I mean, any way you look at it, ‘Blinding Lights’ is a great song. It was fun to give it our flavor, and add our style to it. Also, both we and The Weeknd are Canadian, specifically from the Toronto area, so that made it even sweeter. We’re all pumped with how it turned out. It hits hard.”
SAINT ASONIA, who released their sophomore album, “Flawed Design”, via Spinefarm Records in 2019, are currently working on new music, which can be expected in 2022.
