On the latest edition of Triple J’s Like a Version series, Swedish singer-songwriter Tove Lo contributed a soulful version of fellow Swede Robyn‘s ‘Dancing On My Own’.
Tove Lo said of the cover: “Lyrically, it’s so simple, so clear, you really picture – like you can really see it in front of you….I just remember that feeling of like, frustration and still hopefulness that’s tied into the song somehow.” And it’s these elements that come through crystal clear in her cover.
Accompanied by a soft piano, Lo slows the song right down, allowing her powerful and pitch perfect voice to carry the lyrics and sentiment of the track. This turns the track from a dancefloor banger into a gentle song for the early hours, for contemplation or finding solace over a nightcap.
