If you haven’t already heard this cover of Bon Iver’s Skinny Love that’s currently burning its way up the charts and radio playlists, then put aside three minutes of your time to give it a listen. A haunting track in its first incarnation, Birdy’s managed a beautifully emotive cover – sure, she had great source material but this is an original take on it. I would say remember her name, but then, you’re not likely to forget it now are you? A gorgeous track to start the week.
