Guy Sebastian experiments with EDM on catchy new single “Like A Drum” but the Aussie superstar proved the song can (more than) stand on its own without the soaring synths and thunderous beats when he performed a brilliant acoustic version for us at Nightbird Studios in Los Angeles.

Accompanied by only a guitar, Guy dusts off the powerful pipes that made Lupe Fiasco collaboration “Battle Scars” a platinum-selling hit in 2012. This is a vocal tour de force. The 32-year-old makes “Like A Drum” shine in a completely different light while showcasing his incredible versatility. Hopefully, we get an official acoustic version somewhere down the track because this is really, really good. Watch up top.
