Ellie Goulding and Calvin Harris have a huge hit on their hands with “I Need Your Love”. The hypnotic floorfiller is shooting up the Hot 100, landing at a new peak of number 30 this week. To help keep the momentum going the English songbird has unveiled an acoustic version and it’s a beauty.
Accompanied by only a guitar and a piano, Ellie has transformed the Calvin Harris-produced electro-anthem into a delicate ballad that highlights her distinctive vocals and range. The song sounds fantastic in its pared-back state, which is a testament to its fundamental quality. Listen after the jump.
Do you approve of this version or should they stick with the uptempo original? Give us your two cents in the comments.
