The reworking of the Beach Bunny original sees the lyrics change slightly.
In the original, the lyrics hear Beach Bunny’s Lili Trifilio sing “But when he loves me, I feel like I’m floating. When he calls me pretty, I feel like somebody.”
The new version hears Tegan and Sara switch the pronouns in their chorus to “she” and Trifilio’s chorus switches them to “they”.
“We’re massive fans of Beach Bunny, and when we heard ‘Cloud 9’ for the first time fell in love with the brilliant lyrics and addictive melody,” say Tegan and Sara.
“We love that Lili was up to let us experiment with changing the pronoun in the chorus to she,” say the twins.
“The efforts made to make the song relatable to everyone, isn’t just about inclusivity, we think it’s a great indication of the flexibility and creative spirit of the band at its core!”
