Cover Of The Day: "Centuries" - Brittany Butler (Fall Out Boy)

Hey guys!

New segment allert!
"Cover Of The Day" is probably pretty self-explanatory: there are tons of cover versions of pretty much any song online.
And this segment is going to showcase the ones I stumble upon and thoroughly enjoy.

The first cover I'd like to share with you is performed by Brittany Butler, a singer/songwriter from Boston, USA.
Brittany has been uploading covers and original songs on her YouTube channel for about seven years.
Music has always been a part of her life; at the age of 9 years she met a Berklee College of Music alum who suggested that she should audition for Berklee City Music. Once young Brittany was old enough, she auditioned and was accepted to study.

A lot has happened since then and her career is nowhere close to an end. Just last year Brittany was a contestant on The Voice, her blind audition made Pharell Williams and Gwen Stefani turn their chairs. She then joined Pharell's team.

Her version of "Centuries" (originally performed by Fall Out Boy) blew me away.
 It's a lot different if you compare it to the original, an alternative-rock tune. Brittany has put her own twist on the song and converted it into a jazzy and r'n'b masterpiece. Her vocals are only supported by her guitar playing and some light backing vocals. 
The laid back vibe Brittany put on the song goes along so well with her voice, it will leave you wanting more.

Have a listen yourself!
