Though King Creosote has released over 40 albums, he first came to a lot of people’s attention in 2011 when the Scottish singer’s album with Jon Hopkins was nominated for the Mercury Prize. His gorgeous falsetto lilt was a revelation, and it works perfectly on his new cover of Cher‘s “Believe.”
These days, the song is best remembered as pioneering the use of manipulated AutoTune well before T-Pain came along. Needless to say, King Creosote (née Kenny Anderson)’s version features none of that. Just simple plucking and that voice. Watch it below. (via Gigwise)
