If you're longing for the angst-filled days of the 90s when My So Called Life reigned supreme and it was more than acceptable to cry yourself to sleep while blasting the Cranberries, this song is for you. Sam Smith, vocal lender for the hot hot Disclosure hit "Latch," has a delicious acoustic cover of the track, here for your listening pleasure.
It's interesting listening to this version of the track stripped of all UK house elements. Piano and affected vocals frost the acoustic version with a preteen-sized bucket of longing, seeming to bring the story from a star-crossed gaze on the dance floor to a severely heartbroken individual. Sam Smith clearly shows the prowess of his vocal pipes, emotion saturated in every note. Let's get sentimental.
If you haven't heard, Smith also just released a serrrrrious jam last week, so take a listen here if you haven't already.
