Watch the haunting rendition’s new music video
Ten Fé have released a stripped back, intimate cover of Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus’ Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’.
On why the track seems to be more “Nick Cave and Johnny Cash” than its original pop sound, Leo Duncan explained “I’ve always thought the song was really beautiful, and heard the intimacy and vulnerability in it, so we wanted to try and bring that out in our version, through the ghostly vocal arrangements and sparse instrumentation; we were trying to make it sound as if we recorded it in the middle of the desert. It’s such a good song, rearranging felt really natural.”
With a set “evocative of the Wild West”, but also closer to home and “when England seemed wild and lawless” the video depicts delivering your heart to someone “I think everyone does this, symbolically, all the time”.
