Watch Halsey & Yungblud Nail a Cover Of Death Cab For Cutie's 'I Will Follow You Into the Dark'
We already knew that Halsey and Yungblud have a deep musical kinship thanks to their sultry new collab single with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, "11 Minutes." But the pair showed off a very different side of their connection in a new Triple J "Like a Version" session, during which they offered up an emotional take on Death Cab For Cutie's beloved 2005 ballad "I Will Follow You Into the Dark."
Yungblud plays the plaintive song's intro on a keyboard and singing the first verse in a near-whisper, "Love of mine, someday you will die/ But Ill be close behind and I'll follow you into the dark/ No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white," as Halsey perches on a stool to his left, her eyes closed in concentration.
"In Catholic school as vicious as Roman rule/ I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black," the flame-haired singer adds before the pair merge their voices on the chorus and a string section swells around their well-matched sugar and sandpaper vocals.
