It’s been about a month since Demi Lovato released their most recent album, Revamped, which consists of heavier (rock) versions of their best hits. Lovato came back to the studio soon to record something much different: a cover of “Let Me Down Easy,” from the album Aurora. If neither the song title nor the album title ring any bells, you’re probably not familiar with Daisy Jones & the Six, the fictional band from ’70s LA now streaming on Amazon Prime; Aurora is DJ&TS‘s soundtrack.

In Aurora, the sound of the group feels like classic rock–almost as if it was straight out of the 70s. It has compelling trotting percussion and distorted guitar with a touch of folk in the harmonies.

Lovato’s cover of “Let Me Down Easy” sees her blending old-school rock and pop together. The artist kept the version pretty true to the original as far as instrumentation, but vocally, made it much more joyous. Whereas the original harmonies of “Let Me Down Easy” are thick and rustic, hers are crystalline and new. While their choice of instrumentation is identical, the studio musicians backing her up opted for softer, more modern timbred guitars and so on. There is a compelling moment in the intro when the synergy of it all combines to create a reedy, saxophone-liked sound. Take a listen below!
