UK-based musician SAER announces his unique take on Johnny Cash's classic song, "I Walk the Line''. Recognized for his ability to navigate a myriad musical styles, SAER reinterprets this timeless piece as a dark and moody epic ballad, lending it a distinct aura of haunting sombreness. SAER's vocal is beautifully performed with his flying falsetto in stark contrast to the deep tones of Cash. The cover is about as far away as you could imagine both in terms of tempo and atmosphere, in this new sonic backdrop, the lyrics don't lose their meaning either, a juxtaposing polar effect in SAER's musical arrangement gives this version a life and presence all of its own.

Starting with a delicate piano, accompanied by strings and a chilling drone effect, the track lifts into an expansive soundscape with a resonant drum and synth, reflecting SAER's darker interpretation of the lyrics. This rendition interestingly aligns more with Johnny Cash's original intention for the song to be a romantic ballad before his record company suggested the song be cut as an upbeat single release.

The accompanying music video is artful in its own right, produced by long-term collaborator, director Paul Griffin. Employing 1920s noir-style cartoon animation, the video features a CGI black cat with large white eyes traversing the shadowy alleys of a city, metaphorically exploring the darker aspects of Johnny Cash's life encounters with darkness and danger. Griffin's attention to detail includes easter eggs throughout the video for devoted Cash fans to discover.

SAER's cover of "I Walk the Line'' and its accompanying music video will be available on all major music platforms from September 15th. Stay tuned for a unique, reflective journey through the world of Johnny Cash, as interpreted by SAER. This highly anticipated single will not disappoint..
