If you haven’t already fallen in love with FKA Twigs yet, now is a good time to do so. The experimental R&B artist just stopped by Radio 1 Live Lounge and dropped this gorgeous take on Sam Smith‘s “Stay With Me.”
The cover takes the song in an ethereal direction, trading in the gospel-like vocals of the original for an eerie, trip-hop feel. Prior to the cover, she told host Alice Levine why she chose this song:
“I’m covering Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’. … There was one line which basically alludes to saying, ‘I’m not in love with you and maybe this isn’t a serious thing, but it’s perfect for right now and it’s what I need emotionally right now,’ and maybe that’s just something that I have related to.”
Watch and listen to the live cover below:
