Former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach has commented on the news that Swedish pop/rock singer SOFIA has recorded a cover of SKID ROW's "Wasted Time" for inclusion on her upcoming debut album, "Lifetraveller", due in early July via BTM Records (as first reported here yesterday).The 23-year-old Sofia stated in a press release, "I always had a soft spot for that song, so we did it more or less for fun, but it turned out so well that I wanted it to be on the album." In a posting on his official web site, Sebastian wrote, "WOW! That is very cool, I cannot wait to hear this version! I wrote the song 'Wasted Time' back in 1990 about a friend who was heading down the wrong path. Never did I think that 15 years after writing the song it would be remade into a pop track. I really want to hear this, maybe I can pick up a copy next week when we play Sweden!" SOFIA worked with an impressive list of producers and songwriters on her debut CD, including Butch Walker (AVRIL LAVIGNE, SIMPLE PLAN, THE DONNAS) and Clif Magness (MICHELLE BRANCH, FAITH HILL, LISA MARIE PRESLEY). The first single, "My Bad" (audio), landed on the Swedish sales chart in its first week of release and has received heavy rotation on radio stations all over Sweden.
