13 Songs, 44 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

There’s a mournful grain to Jasmine Thompson’s voice that makes well-known songs sound like freshly minted heartbreak. For her second album interpreting modern pop classics, she forlornly sings “Rather Be” and “Royals” to minimal guitar accompaniment, then wrests quiet desperation out of the drama of “Wrecking Ball.” While “Sweet Child O’ Mine” may seem like a punning reference to her age (she was 13 when this album was released in 2014), the sparkling piano and doleful melody take the song to an unexpectedly beatific place.

Awesome

She has a beautiful voice. It's rare to find a cover that's better than the original and she has many that are way better than original.
