About this item

A two track 7" from Soccer Mommy featuring a cover of Bruce Springsteen's classic single 'I'm On Fire,' and a rework of an old Soccer Mommy song, 'Henry.' Available in limited quantities on vinyl.

At just 20 years old, Nashville native Sophie Allison is already well-known for the raw emotion she demonstrates as Soccer Mommy. Not only did she put together a poignant collection of songs for her Clean debut, but she consistently delivers a stirring live show. That’s especially true when she performs her cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire”, a frequent concert staple. Now, she’s transferred that heart-rending power to a studio version of the track.

Broken down to little more than a sadly strummed guitar and Allison’s layered, reverberating vocals, the sparseness highlights the innate loneliness of The Boss’ work. “I wanted to make a version of ‘I’m On Fire’ that connected with the sadness of the song,” Allison said in a press release. “I think that doing a more stripped down version allowed me to make something that feels emotionally raw
