You’re actually not ready for this.
UK songstress Adele, whose latest album 21 is poised to rocket to the #1 spot and sell more than “the rest of the Top 10 albums combined” on the UK Album Chart next week according to the Official Charts Company, just completed her highly anticipated cover on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. The song in question? Cheryl Cole‘s “Promise This.”
Backed by a gorgeous combination of piano, tambourine and soft hi-hat and drum sounds, Adele takes Chezza’s electro-blippy 2010 bestselling single and turns into something more soulful and gorgeous than ever before.
This is the way “Promise This” was always meant to be sung. I’m utterly blown away.
Many thanks to Mike and Olly at Teen Today for the song stream!
