You’re usually pretty sure what Sunday is going to throw at you, but sometimes you wake up to something like this and your world is sent spinning. Yes, it’s true, FKA Twigs has covered Sam Smith‘s megahit, Stay With Me for Radio 1’s Live Lounge and it’s amazing. In true Twigs fashion this is not your stock-standard cover. It’s a jittery, late-night rendition of the track with Twigs taking melodic detours and leaving out lyrics where she pleases. The result is an illuminating and haunting cover that resonates in a completely different but no less emotional way as Smith’s original. Just try living a normal Sunday now. Just. Try.
