Here’s a worthy cover from Bridgit Mendler: The “Hurricane” songbird has debuted her own take on Ellie Goulding‘s lushly gorgeous “Starry Eyed,” which sort of got forgotten after the unexpected radio takeover of “Lights,” didn’t it? Ah, well. Miss Mendler is here to breathe new life into it.
As part of her Hurricane Sessions acoustic video series, Mendler sings the song against a twinkly background of lights — and her husky voice works nicely with the song, especially toward the end, as it gets a little more emotive. Also, she’s wearing a shirt with unicorns on it, so she wins implicitly.
Watch up top.
