New Releases Listen: Sia – “Like A River Runs” Posted by Jesus A. • June 2, 2015

New Sia music is always a blessing.

The Australian singer-songwriter was handpicked by Bleachers’ frontman, Jack Antonoff, to cover his new singleLike A River Runs“.  Sia’s poignant cover is part of Bleachers’ Like A River Runs EP, which includes a re-work of the original track, a live version, Sia’s version and a 15-minute audio of Antonoff’s therapy session that recounts the story behind the track.

Although the original is stellar all by itself, Sia’s stripped-down version of “Like A River Runs” works perfectly with the song’s emotive lyrics. While “River” is clearly a song about deep loss, the song’s meaning can get lost while paired with Antonoff’s anthemic production. Sia’s poignant voice does a magnificent job at encapturing all of the emotions the song’s lyrics are meant to convey.

Listen to Sia’s version below. Like A River Runs EP is now available on iTunes.
