The original cut of this tune belongs in the electronica world, but the lead vocalist of the song, Eliza Doolittle decided to release a video of her singing the song stripped back to what it should have been, in my opinion.
With just Doolittle’s voice against her piano-playing, it’s rather refreshing to hear such a beautiful voice being sung, and not be distracted by those bouncy beats.
“So please don’t let go, cause you know exactly what we found
So please don’t let go my darling
You keep me hooked up underground
It’s gonna be you and me
It’s gonna be everything you’ve ever dreamed”
I’m definitely digging this piano version over the Disclosure produced track. It manages to be soft, intimate, vulnerable and poetic all at the same time.
What do you think? Listen and compare Disclosure’s single below to Eliza’s performance above.
