What makes “Torn” the perfect song for Pope to cover? “I absolutely love it. It’s one of those songs that you can take and twist in any which way you want, so I decided to take the more intimate approach,” she said in a new video. (See the full video today on Buzznet). Indeed, she slows down the original enough to draw just a little extra ache from the lyrics, and her vocals — often cranked up for maximum sunniness on Hey Monday’s hits — sound beautifully delicate against the piano and violins.
Pope has said she expects to play what the fans want to hear on her new tour, and we expect they’re going to want to her this one every night. (If you’d like to see for yourself, you’ll have a chance to win tickets this week on Buzznet and PureVolume).
