Last month, Hey Monday released a new version of 'Candles' on iTunes, and now the song will be featured in the March 15 episode of 'Glee.' Of course, singer Cassadee Pope couldn't be more excited for the pop ballad cover.
"It is an honor to have our song covered by one of the biggest show on television," the 21-year-old tells JSYK exclusively. "I think 'Glee' is amazing -- it's a breath of fresh air and I especially admire a show that revolves around music. I can't wait to hear their rendition of 'Candles'!"
When we spoke with Cassadee in February, she explained the differences between the new and old version of the song. "As musicians and as people, we have grown so much in the last three years," she said. "I think the new 'Candles' really reflects that with its richer textures and more sophisticated arrangement. It's more uplifting now, as well, and translates really well live!"
Hey Monday also just released a video for the song, which premiered on Just Jared Jr. on Wednesday. Watch the video below and watch 'Glee' on Tuesday to see how New Directions transforms the track.
