Buoyed by the success and resounding admiration of her cover of ABBA’s ‘The Winner Takes It All’ earlier this year, Sarah Dawn Finer has now tackled a newer classic. It’s Avicii’s ‘Wake Me Up’. The sound of summer 2013. The song that is this week on course to become the fastest selling single of the year in the UK.
She transforms the song into an acoustic ballad, accompanied by her own good self on the guitar. It’s a gorgeous version of what’s already an amazing track. And of course it’s always fantastic to hear THOSE vocals sing…..well…..pretty much anything really.
But yes. This is a winner. Performed live this morning on P3 radio, who had challenged her to come up with her own version of a song that listeners had selected. And they went for ‘Wake Me Up’;
