Robyn Covers Coldplay "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall" (BBC Live Lounge)

Robyn-ll

After her fantastic performance last year, Swedish pop pixie Robyn returned to BBC Radio One's Live Lounge today to perform a few tracks, including a heartfelt remake of Coldplay's "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall."

The group's uplifting tune about living life to the fullest against the odds is a perfect match for Robyn's knack for delivering finely-tuned, bittersweet melodies. Set to shimmering synths, Robyn's emotionally-honest and delicate delivery adds meaning to the song's escapist lyrics that is both soothing and uplifting. This cover once again shows that Robyn has a unique gift to stir up emotions that will leave you inspired and touched with a few tears of joy. 

It is a beautifully performed and arranged reinterpretation of Coldplay's anthemic orginal that comes at a perfect time. With all the bleak news headlines of the last few days, Robyn provides comfort, hope and light with this wonderful cover. Listen to it after the break.
