Composer and producer Tommee Profitt released his newest collection of covers, titled Volume 2. And featured inside this second collection of covers was Skylar Grey’s compelling version of Linkin Park’s “Numb”. Skylar Grey (AKA Holly Brook Hafermann) is a singer, and record producer from Wisconsin. Her vocal delivery in this tune is both chilling and epic.

While the original crescendos into a much larger, more angsty sound, there is something to be said about having a stripped-back version of a powerful song. And in the hands of Skylar Grey and Tommee Profitt? They have a heartbreaking cover. From the detuned piano, epic hits, and oh-so-quiet ending, this is one you’re certainly going to want to put on your next playlist.

This version was released simultaneously with a music video, which pans from the singer to the orchestra to the pianist, and, finally, to an empty museum-like hallway…
