YouTube sensation and America's Got Talent contestant Lindsey Stirling's last album, Shatter Me, debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 album chart, and she isn't slowing down any time soon. Her new deluxe album Shatter Me: The Complete Experience Zinepak will drop Nov. 28. As part of that, Billboard can exclusively premiere an acoustic version of her hit single "Shatter Me."

"I wanted this version of 'Shatter Me' to feel vulnerable and raw; the same way that I felt when I was struggling to overcome a consuming eating disorder," Stirling tells Billboard. "It's extremely hard to make yourself vulnerable by choice however that is the key to healing; weather it's imperfect raw violin playing, or exposing our personal weaknesses so we can see where to improve."
