Damien Rice has released a melancholic cover of Sia’s 2014 pop smash hit, ‘Chandelier’, as part of the ‘Songs For Australia’ benefit album. Listen to it below.
The album, which is compiled by Julia Stone, features covers of songs originally sung by Australian artists to help support various charities and foundations committed to bushfire relief.
Rice’s cover is just the latest to drop ahead of the album’s release on Friday, March 13. ‘Chandelier’ follows The National’s rendition of INXS’ ‘Never Tear Us Apart’, Dermot Kennedy doing Matt Corby’s ‘Resolution’ and Dope Lemon’s cover of The Go-Betweens’ ‘Streets Of Your Town’. Stone herself covered Midnight Oil’s ‘Beds Are Burning’, which she performed live for the first time at the Down To Earth bushfire concert last month.
