Occasionally, British singer songwriter Passenger releases a new video that is him doing a cover of another artist’s usually very famous song.
Last week, it was a superb version of R.E.M.’s ‘Losing My Religion‘. This week, it’s an equally stunning cover of Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart‘.
And it’s a cover Passenger does in his usual matter-of-fact sort of way, which makes it even more powerful, and even more lovely. And, of course, he makes the song his own. Just as if he wrote it himself.
Watch Passenger sing ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart‘ below. Now, how cool is that?
