‘ “Perfume” was, at first, somewhat tepidly received
, but it’s an undeniably pretty song and showcases some endearing vulnerability. After hearing all of Britney Jean
, though, the lovelorn ballad only comes off stronger. And now an unplugged rendition has hit the Web, featuring both Britney and the song’s co-writer Sia
on vocals, making another strong case for the song.
Brit’s voice is even more raw and striking with this take, particularly on the verses, and Sia turns in a powerful refrain and adds a few backing chants to bolster the emotional heft. It’s pretty great!
Hear the alternate version below.
