WATCH NEW VIDEO FOR COVER OF ‘BOYS DON’T CRY‘
BY THE CURE
TOURING THE UK IN JANUARY SUPPORTING CORY WELLS
Lizzy Farrall has released a new video for a cover of The Cure’s ‘Boys Don’t Cry.’

Speaking about why she chose to cover The Cure Lizzy said“When Pure Noise approached me with the idea of releasing a cover, I instantly knew I wanted to cover something by The Cure. The Cure are a big inspiration to me and Boys Don’t Cry is one of their most well-known songs, so it was an easy decision for me. I don’t doubt people will wonder why I chose this song when the chorus’ lyrics are ‘Boys Don’t Cry’. I was tempted to sing ‘girls’ instead of ‘boys’ but I felt that would have taken away from the importance of them pointing to the toxic masculinity and stigma that men shouldn’t show their feelings. Saying that, even though I kept the lyrics identical to the original I wanted to make the cover my own; I wanted to reimagine the song as though it was written as a modern pop song. I’m super happy with how the cover turned out and hope I’ve done justice to the original.”
Earlier this year, Lizzy released her new EP ‘Barbados’ through Pure Noise Records. Fans can now purchase or stream the EP on iTunes, Apple Music or Spotify. Fans can check out the official music videos for the lead single “Barbados” and “Games”.
Lizzy will be joining label mate Cory Wells on an upcoming Euro/UK tour taking place early 2020. Fans can grab tickets to the shows now at http://lizzyfarrall.com/. This year alone she has toured with the likes of Four Year Strong, Elder Brother, Aaron West & The Roaring Twenties, Can’t Swim and performed at Slam Dunk Festival.
