We've all heard Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding's collaboration I Need Your Love- seriously, radio is KILLING the song. But I bet you haven't heard the club track done this way. (Note: That bet is off the table if you've already seen this EXACT video, mind!)
Sitting down with Billboard on a tour bus in Pittsburgh, Ellie (and her guitarists) discombobulated and reconstructed the dance anthem, putting a fresh spin on the played out song. In other words, they gave it the acoustic treatment.
In the context of Ellie's own folksy-inspired back catalouge, this version makes more sense to me. I wouldn't say it's better, so much as it's different. But a bonus of this change of pace is that the focus is put squarely on Ellie's impish voice. A voice that has never been what one would call "powerful" can be better appreciated-note its delicacy, slight rasp and nimbleness - in an softer setting
Take a listen to both versions of I Need Your Love and let me know which you preferred!
