NYC’s Empress Of recently stopped by SiriusXMU, and during her appearance she delivered a stripped-back, piano-driven cover of The Weeknd’s No. 1 hit, “Can’t Feel My Face.” Stripping the original of its lavish, bouncy production, Empress Of’s cover offers a considerably different take on the original. The focus here is entirely on Empress Of’s voice, which, while very different from that of The Weeknd, more than does justice to the original track.

Listen to her cover of “Can’t Feel My Face” below.
