Robyn is making gold out of Chris Martin’s tears. The Swede covered Coldplay’s newest single “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” while performing at Radio 1 Live Lounge, and Katy Perry’s tour buddy (and upcoming Hollywood Bowl performer) puts her unique glean on the British band’s tune, her vocal delivery less bombastic than Chris Martin’s on the original, but no less powerful. Hear it below.
