Eclipse – “Driving One Of Your Cars”

Originally released and recorded by Swedish singer-songwriter Lisa Miskovsky, ‘Driving One
Of Your Cars’ was a huge hit in her home territory in 2001. Her compatriots Eclipse premiered
a cover of the song during their ‘Live From The Quarantine’ streamed live show on 1st April,
and the studio version has been released as a single today.

“I clearly remember the first time I heard this song. I was in my car (go figure, right?) in
Stockholm and it came on the radio. I actually had to pull over to just stop and listen because
I thought it was such a great tune,” states Eclipse singer Erik Martensson.

He continues, “I actually got to perform the song with Lisa about ten years later, which was
really cool, and the band have been talking about recording it ever since. It’s just one of those
songs that get stuck in your head. It’s been in mine for almost two decades now. Once we
started toying around with it, it very quickly started to feel like ‘our’ song. I’m sure that Eclipse
fans who may not have heard the original version could easily think that it’s one of our tunes.
Twenty years from now, I hope there’s a new band around who can’t get that old Eclipse song
out of their head and decide to cover it. I’ll sit in on backing vocals.”

The current studio album by Eclipse, ‘Paradigm’, was released in October 2019.
