Bianca Ryan released “What The World Needs Now Is Love” on Friday, November 6th. The song was originally released by Jackie DeShannon in 1965.
The song is the first off her upcoming Winter EP, out this month.
The acapella in the beginning stanza really showcases Ryan’s voice and makes you really listen to the impact of the words, because this song is so relevant to today. It can really bring people together, especially now, during the holiday season.
Her little sister, Eva, is featured in the choir in the background vocals.
This is her third song and cover released this year, after “Fast Car” and “Hallelujah.” Bianca puts her own spin on all of the songs and shines while covering the older, sultry songs.
For her upcoming Winter EP, Bianca will revamp her biggest hit, “Why Couldn’t It Be Christmas Everyday?” The song always reenters the charts every holiday season, so this will be exciting to see how well it performs 14 years later.
Everyone who pre-saved the song ahead of time, was invited to a special VIP Zoom Listening Party, where they talked about the song, the process, and what’s next.
This song will definitely be on repeat now and throughout the holiday season. If you want to snag an autographed copy of her upcoming EP, be sure to join her Patreon page.
“What The World Needs Now Is Love” is now available on all streaming platforms.
