Words: Saam Das
Adele dropped the first taste of her '25' album yesterday, in the form of soaring ballad, 'Hello'. Understandably, the covers have already begun. They'll undoubtedly be a mixed bag, but we're glad to say that Sebastian Kole's melodic effort is up there with Adele's track - and we might even cheekily suggest that it supercedes the original.
You'll probably know Kole best from his recent work as co-writer and producer of Alessia Cara's smash 'Here', but we also rather liked his Ryan Tedder-esque solo material, 'Priceless'. Kole's version of 'Hello' is more solemn than what we've heard from him thus far, and feels particularly heartfelt. Compare his effort to Adele's, via the Xavier Dolan-directed video below.
