The Wilhelm Scream (James Blake Cover) – Daniel Caesar

by sampence - December 3, 2013

Aaand cue goosebumps. While it may be a bit out of character for us at the K to post a song featuring only acoustic piano and vocals, I think we can make an exception with Canadian artist Daniel Caesar‘s extraordinary cover of James Blake’s “The Wilhelm Scream.” Caesar strips down the ethereal original to just a few chords layered atop his breathtaking voice, and we’re left with a bold and beautiful interpretation with no unnecessary extras — just the way a cover ought to be done.

I’ll let the music do the rest of the talking. Daniel Caesar’s just getting started under Canadian label IXXI, so before you go be sure to show him some love on Facebook.
