Teaming up with her producer Swagg R’Celious, Dawn revamps Adele’s power ballad and transforms it into a seductive R&B banger. In an interview with Pitchfork, Dawn explained her take on Adele’s hit single:
“I’m always skeptical about doing covers,” she said. “If I do them, I usually take them and morph them into my own. For example, when I covered Katy Perry’s ‘Dark Horse’ my producer and I sat down to create a distinct sound for the track. Recreating ‘Hello’ was no different because I had the urge to cover it in my own way. I just couldn’t resist a record that was so well-written.”
While Adele’s 25 is conquering iTunes and flying off store shelves today, Dawn’s gearing up to release her forthcoming album The Red Era, due out in 2016.
Take a listen to Dawn’s cover below.
