Now and then we see an artist comes along that offers a cover of a song that is so unlike the original that they make it their own. Whether it’s Jimi Hendrix’s version of ‘All Along The Watchtower’, or Jeff Buckley’s ‘Hallelujah’, or in this case, Jordan Smith’s cover of Sia’s ‘Chandelier’.
While the song was already fantastic in its original form, this cover takes it in a whole new direction. Taking an already thunderous and powerful song and turning it into something entirely his own, it’s profound and overpowering by virtue of its sweet and gentle rendition. This is a cover to listen to again and again.
