George Perris has released the stunning music video for his cover of Billie Eilish’s track, “My Future”. Taken from his recently released third full-length English-language album No Armor, the cover amplifies the track’s quietly triumphant mood with cascading Balkan percussion and gloriously soaring Middle Eastern strings. The cover of “My Future” holds a special place in George’s heart following the international news of his coming out.

“At the start of lockdown, I’d gone through several years of big changes in my life, so I threw myself into psychoanalysis to try to focus on what I needed and wanted,” Perris says in disclosing the cover’s origins. “As soon as I heard ‘My Future’ I knew I had to create my own version of it: it’s a big part of the puzzle in terms of not just reflecting on the past but looking forward to the future and where I’m going next in my life.”
This week, George Perris has become the newest member in the family of UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors from around the world who defend children’s rights in every corner of the planet; other Goodwill Ambassadors include Audrey Hepburn, David Beckham, Pink, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, and Nana Mouskouri.
