" ‘Kashmir’ has always been one of my favorite rock songs and I'm so excited I got to work with the legendary producers Howard Benson (Motörhead, All American Rejects) and Neil Sanderson (Three Days Grace, My Darkest Days) on imagining a way to bring it to life in my style,” Stirling shared. 

As an artist who has consistently pushed the boundaries of what’s possible with the violin, Stirling's "Kashmir" cover serves as a testament to her musical innovation and her ability to seamlessly bridge the gap between genres. Her arrangement captivates listeners with its dynamic range, showcasing her ability to transition from delicate and ethereal moments to explosive crescendos. Stirling’s electric violin folds into the epic melody of the rock classic seamlessly, in a unique take on Led Zeppelin’s song. 

Alongside the song, Stirling made her Lollapalooza Paris debut on the mainstage, just before kicking off her five-week U.S. summer tour. Multi-Platinum pop band Walk off the Earth will support Stirling on her U.S. tour.

Stirling has performed for more than 800,000 people on her headline tours, and her run of dates with Evanescence was named one of Live Nation’s best-selling amphitheater tours.
