YES. YES. YES.
Recently, Kelis visited Cherrytree Records HQ to perform a small acoustic Flesh Tone set. The results are now LIVE.
Please do yourselves a favor and click above to watch the singer’s completely stripped-down take on MuuMuse’s favorite track from the album, “Brave.”
Ditching the dozens of synth layers that make up its electro-fied original, the acoustic version of “Brave” shines thanks to a focus on Kelis’ soulful delivery style–as well as some added lyricism (There is some talk of driving old school beemers and 18-wheelers–not entirely sure what that’s all about).
The performance is touching–and spot-on vocally, no less. I love to bits.
For the other, equally necessary performances from the Cherrytree session (“22nd Century” and “4th of July”), click here.
THIS ALBUM IS STILL AMAZING, FYI.
