Our favourite Aussie folk-electro artist Vera Blue has blessed our ears with her intimate take of David Bowie’s iconic ’77 hit Heroes and we are obsessed. Check it out below.
Vera Blue – real name Celia Pavey – took to Instagram to share the news of the release, expressing how happy she felt that people were connecting with her version of the song after she had performed it for Under the Covers.
“I truly feel music is a powerful way to express emotions and give people a voice to share their stories and connect with others,” she wrote.

🌺 I performed ‘Heroes’ for a live stream a few weeks back and was so overwhelmed by the response from you guys that I’ve decided to release it. I truly feel music is a powerful way to express emotions and give people a voice to share their stories and connect with others. I’m happy people are connecting with my take on this incredible song. Recorded and produced by my love @billiammmmm ❤️ … it’s yours now. VB xx (link in bio) ⚡️x
The sultry smooth sounds of Pavey’s voice wrap you in a blanket of warmth as she recreates the classic Bowie track, and after enormously positive feedback, we are lucky enough to have received a recorded version!
