BBC 1’s Radio Lounge is wonderfully notorious for bringing artists in to the studio to put their own spin on some of today’s biggest hits and this perfect pairing of Kygo and Ella Henderson is no exception. While I have my own feelings about the artist-currently-known-as “Tay Tay,” I can’t deny how much I love this cover.
Kygo, most well-known for his laid back tropical house tunes like “Firestone” and “Stole the Show,” shows off his musical prowess by flawlessly tickling the ivories while Ella Henderson, probably most well-known for her track “Ghost,” exudes a touching vulnerability with her lilting vocals and breathy runs. Their musical chemistry is anything but basic, which isn’t shocking considering the duo also recently collaborated on Kygo’s track “Here For You.”
Kygo is performing in San Diego, CA this weekend at CRSSD festival and who knows? Maybe Ella will sneak her way on to the stage. Tickets are still available here.
