belated tune: Birdy, “Skinny Love”
Take a teenage prodigy, pick an especially dreary day, and lock said prodigy up in an old, decrepit house with a piano and a camera crew. And voila, a Top 20 hit in the UK, right?
Well, that was the case in April with Jasmine Van den Bogaerde (or, Birdy) and her cover of Bon Iver’s 2008 single “Skinny Love.” Enjoy this stunning track from a voice we expect to hear a lot more of in years to come (she’s only 15?!).
