This is not the sound we associate with either of the guys, but we’re really into it!
Sam Smith and Hozier may receive a lot of comparisons based on the fact that they came out around the same time, have pretty similar styles, and are both from the U.K. — but this cover of Lay Me Down is pretty unique.
That’s because Hozier put a funky twist on Sam’s very first single while performing at BBC Radio 1‘s Live Lounge on Tuesday, and we fell in love right from the very start!
Not only does Hozier’s arrangement prove how talented of an artist he is, it’s nice to hear Sam’s AH-Mazing lyrics in a brand new light.
Ch-ch-check out the cover that’s sure to get stuck in your head (below)!!!
