Sofia Valdes Covers Gwen Stefani’s ‘The Sweet Escape’


Powerhouse Panamanian singer/songwriter is back this time with a beautiful take on Gwen Stefani’s song “The Sweet Escape”. It’s a cover we never would have expected but are pleasantly surprised by it. The cover incorporates her signature indie-pop style with a splash of bossa nova and is the latest from Sofía, who recently released debut tracks “Handful of Water” and “Little Did I Know” to critical acclaim from the likes of Consequence of SoundRefinery29FLAUNTRemezclaOnes To Watch, and many more. 

Sofía explains, “I decided to record ‘The Sweet Escape’ because I thought it would be fun to take something so different than my style and make it my own. I grew up knowing the song pretty well, since my mom would play it in the car a lot. She would blast the song with the windows down. I would get furious because I was super sensitive to loud sounds and wind would make my hair messy, I was 6. But it’s now such a sweet memory.” 

Sofia is set to release her upcoming debut album Ventura on 2/5/21 and we can’t wait to hear it! Check out her cover of “The Sweet Escape” below.
