Corey Hart Offers a New Updated Version “Never Surrender”as an Athem for People's Strength During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Fri Jun 26, 2020

One of Corey Hart's most iconic hit singles, ‘Never Surrender’, has been reworked and inspired by people's unwavering strength during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Montreal-born performer says he's written and recorded an updated version of the track from his 1985 album Boy in the Box.

Never Surrender (Angels) 2020 takes a cue from the original, but Hart says it incorporates a new melody and lyrics that reflect his perspective as a songwriter today. "Since the pandemic began, I've received so many heartfelt messages from people all over the world telling me how much Never Surrender has meant to them during the journey of their lives, including into this new crucible we are all facing," he said in a statement.

"It thus spurred me on to release a reworked single and video."

Hart says his new version was recorded at Sanctuary Studios in Nassau, Bahamas, where he lives with his family, who all chipped in to make the video, which was directed by his wife, Julie Masse.

“As we are in a stringent lockdown here in the Bahamas we had no other alternative but do it ourselves,” he said.
