Amy Macdonald has revealed her version of the 4 Non Blondes classic What’s Up?, which she has released as an Amazon Original. While the original song was first released in 1992, her performance of the song feels like a natural extension of the themes she explored in last year’s top ten album The Human Demands. Her impassioned vocal acutely captures the feeling of having found your place in the world and the frustration of longing for a societal change that may never come.

4 Non Blondes’ original version of What’s Up? peaked at number two in the UK during an eight week run in the top ten. It was written by Linda Perry, who went on to become one of the world’s most successful songwriters, with credits for Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, Pink, Adele and many more.

What’s Up? is released ahead of Amy’s long awaited return to touring, which begins with a homecoming festival at Glasgow’s TRNSMT. Her October headline tour culminates at London’s historic Roundhouse, ahead of another huge Glasgow show when she headlines the SSE Hydro shortly before Christmas. All UK headline shows feature guest Callum Beattie. She will then tour Europe in March 2022.

With a top ten chart position, ten million streams and wide-ranging critical acclaim, Amy Macdonald’s current album The Human Demands has marked a hugely successful new chapter in her career. Just one thing has been missing, however, the opportunity to perform some of these songs in person for fans. But finally there’s light at the end of the tunnel and Amy’s headline show at London’s historic Roundhouse has been scheduled for October 26th.

Amy adds, “I’m really excited to share these acoustic versions of songs from The Human Demands! I think it’s always really good to strip the songs right back to give people the chance to hear the lyrics more clearly. When you do songs acoustically, it just opens it up and allows people to get a different perspective.”
