Yesterday, singer/songwriter with a newfound lease of popularity Alex Clare graced the Radio 1 Live Lounge to perform his ‘latest single’ “Too Close”, as well as this rather wonderful cover of Fun.’s chart-plaguing “We Are Young“. The original has been rinsed a little too much recently for my liking, but this acoustic rendition is a lovely alternative, and Alex’s voice and beard seems in as tip-top shape as they’ve ever been.
Confusion seems to be rife about why Mr. Clare is holding a guitar throughout the duration of this performance, but as it was the Live Lounge, my money’s on the fact he had nowhere to put it. Damn BBC. Anyway, stream the performance below, and be sure to grab his album The Lateness of The Hour HERE.
