Sam Smith Covers Coldplay and It’s Gorgeous

Everyone who’s ever listened to Sam Smith knows that their voice is magical. From the sultry tones of “Too Good at Goodbyes,” to the subtle angst in “Dancing With a Stranger,” Sam’s range is full of surprises.

But it’s not a huge surprise that when the UK-born singer covered “Fix You” by Coldplay, it turned out amazing. Shot in a tastefully empty room, Sam sits on a stool and does what needed to be done with the song, bringing out the emotion and leaving the instrumental laid bare in the background.

Over a delicate bed of keys, you can hear Sam drawing breath and holding back, to give the song what it needs. But don’t just take my word for it – listen to the cover right here!
