Héloïse Letissier’s take on the Scott single sees her switch to her native French halfway through the cover. Watch the clip below:
In the Instagram caption, she also noted her local timezone as “the morning after 4/20”, as a cheeky reference to the choice of cover song.
“I was going to do some American TV, stick around in LA and do some sessions with musicians. I decided to take this [the lockdown] as a sign to write a lot on my own first instead. It feels a lot like the usual process when I start a new album. The mindset is different, because on my third album I’m looking for something very vast and hopeful.”
Last weekend, Letissier took part in the One World: Together At Home livestream, performing two tracks from ‘La Vita Nuova’: ‘People, I’ve Been Sad’ and ‘Mountains (we met)’. Letissier also covered Steve Lacy‘s ‘N Side’ in March, following a cover of The Weeknd‘s ‘Blinding Lights’.
