Susan Boyle on new album's cover songs: 'I hope I've done them justice'
Speaking to Scotland's Herald newspaper, the star explained that it was a risk to record covers of such iconic songs and she hopes that there isn't any backlash over her decision to include them on her new album's tracklisting:
"I hope I have done them justice in my own way. John Lennon's 'Imagine' was one of the hardest to record, not because of the music or the vocals but because I wanted to do his song justice. Of course the die-hard Lennon fans will probably criticise but I hope that people like my personal take on the song."
Of the album, which is due to be officially released on November 24, Boyle added that she wanted it to be 'inspirational': "I themed this album around inspiration and hope because those are two elements we all need in our life to drive us forward and inspire us to go out and capture our dreams - they worked for me."
The full tracklisting is as follows:
