One of my favorite new artists of last year was Benjamin Francis Leftwich. If you don’t recognize the name, you’d probably recognize either of his songs “Box of Stones” or “Atlas Hands.” The English singer-songwriter has a talent for using his guitar and piano to support and highlight his lyrics instead of overpower them.
Today, I found out he has lended his vocals to one of my favorite songs from last year. Listen below for an entirely new and entirely incredible remix of M83’s “Midnight City.”
Bonus: He’s done some other covers I love of Arcade Fire and The Beatles. Listen here.
