Washington D.C. electro trio SHAED
just released a new version of their song "Perfume" (originally off of their debut EP Just Wanna See
) and a cover of The Weeknd
's "Starboy" exclusively for Spotify's brand new 'Singles Series,' recorded at Spotify Studios NYC. In addition to SHAED, you can find other amazing artists who also recorded songs for the series, like John Legend, D.R.A.M., and Esperanza Spalding.
Lately all I've been listening to is The Weeknd and SHAED (and Childish Gambino, duh) but to combine 2 out of those 3 things ain't too bad. Actually, it's really nice. Their cover is pretty spot on - they keep the smooth, electronic vibe but also add their own vibe with extra synths and dynamic vocals that bring new melodies and harmonies to the track. Now we're confused and can't decide which version we like better... It's a pretty close tie.
