Listen to Audrey Assad’s ‘Wish You Were Here’ from ‘Timeless’ — Piano-Driven and Lovely


Audrey Assad‘s ‘Wish You Were Here’ was featured on the new TV series ‘Timeless‘ — Season 1, Episode 1, “Pilot” — which aired on October 3rd.

It was played during the last segment when Lucy tells Wyatt some things are nothing more than fate, Rufus asks out a colleague, and Lucy finds out her mother is fine.

Assad’s ‘Wish You Were Here‘ is a cover of the classic Pink Floyd track, and it is a sweet, much more emotional piano-driven version instead of the original guitar-laden track.

It is quite lovely actually.

The song itself is from Assad’s recent The Covers EP — an EP, just like it sounds, of covers of songs like Modern English’s ‘I Melt with You‘ and Katrina and the Waves’ ‘Walking on Sunshine‘ alongside the Pink Floyd cover track.

As for Audrey Assad, she is a Nashville-based singer songwriter who is known more for her Christian music than for her non-religious work.

She currently has five albums out with a sixth one on its way, a handful of EPs and several singles.

You can pick up Audrey Assad’s The Covers EP, which ‘Wish You Were Here‘ comes from on most major digital music platforms now.

And, of course, listen to her cool version of ‘Wish You Were Here‘ as heard on Timeless below.
