War Hippies, known for their soulful harmonies and authentic storytelling, have taken on the challenge of reinventing “Promises” with a deep sense of reverence for its origins. Their rendition brings a contemporary twist to the classic tune while preserving its lyrics and heartfelt melody.

Infusing it with an added layer of authenticity and emotional resonance, War Hippies breathe new life into the melody. Their heartfelt interpretation invites listeners to reflect on the complexities of love and the consequences of broken promises.

War Hippies’ cover was originally released in October 2022 as part of the duo’s debut album, War Hippies.
