Folk rock singer Shawn Colvin’s ‘Sunny Came Home‘ was featured on iZombie, Season 5, Episode 9, “The Fresh Princess” last night (June 27th, 2019).
The iconic track was played on the episode as we watched Major shoot the zombie at the pie festival.
Shawn Colvin’s ‘Sunny Came Home‘ is from her fourth studio album A Few Small Repairs. Released in 1996, the theme of the album is divorce, as it was written during the time Colvin was separating from her husband of just two years, Simon Tassano.
And, even though Colvin has had a very successful career spanning more than 30 years, she is still more known for ‘Sunny Came Home‘ then just about anything else she has released before or since.
The song did win her a Grammy Award for Song of the Year and for Record of the Year, though, and also charted high in Australia, Canada, Germany, the U.S. and the UK, so probably not a huge surprise it has become her signature song.
Colvin’s last album release was in 2018 with The Starlighter.
