During a recent set of performances recorded for BBC Radio1’s Live Lounge series, Lewis Capaldi sang a cover of Britney Spears’ “Everytime”. The singer was accompanied by a pianist and a string section complete with a cellist and multiple violinists to amplify the ballad into his unique style.
Although Capaldi is known for his slow- paced ballads, he’s been adapting more playful pop songs into his live performances.
“A wee bit more upbeat than my previous numbers, mostly because after touring the world, I noticed that my lesser-known slower tracks were making some of the crowds look like they were about to fall asleep out of sheer boredom,” he wrote in his press release for the track. “However, this new one is sad AND fast, much like my love making. Not to worry, I’ve still got plenty of depressing ballads up my sleeve.”
“Britney and Lewis together at last x” Lewis Capaldi posted on his Instagram yesterday. Check out the video below!
