If you’ve read my post on what is next for the The Voice Van Vlaanderen contestants then you knew Eva Jacobs had something up her sleeve for us!
Eva was one of the early favourites in the competition, but was surprisingly eliminated in the Battle Rounds. With a Wouter Van Belle produced album already recorded, she wasn’t going to let the momentum fade, though. After getting back into the studio to tweak some last bits and pieces she is ready to release her eponymous album on May 18th. I’m assuming Eva’s debut will include some of the tracks she has up on her official website and YouTube channel, as well as her Bent Van Looy penned, pre-The Voice single “Shine“.
To really kickstart this campaign the soulful singer/songwriter has gone back to the moment Belgium first fell in love with her, her impressive rendition of Alicia Keys’ ‘If I Ain’t Got You’. It got all four chairs turning when she auditioned for The Voice and has been a fan favourite since, so she’s recorded a studio version to be released as her brand new single.
“If I Ain’t Got You” by Eva Jacobs is available on Spotify and iTunes from April 27th.
