Brummie born Londoner, turned Kanye West’s best friend-er Mr Hudson goes old school on us on this new track ‘Angel Eyes’.

He covers a classic song from the legendary Frank Sinatra’s 1958 album “Only the Lonely”. Itself a beautiful and moving track, with Franks vocals stripped back over a sombre melody.

It’s refreshing to see a modern-day artist covering one of his idols and staying true to the original, as opposed to stealing a hook and turning it into a generic club banger (Flo Rida et al; please stand).
The modern beat is kept simple and catchy and could easily be mistaken for a Gorillaz track.

Listen to both versions below:
