Jess Glynne didn’t just co-write “Thursday” with Ed Sheeran. The British singer, who included the song on her recently released sophomore studio album, Always In Between, also recently recorded an unplugged version of the track while the two were Stateside.
The clip opens with the friends walking around backstage and then sitting down on some gear boxes, with Sheeran picking out the ballad’s melody on an acoustic and Glynne singing the empowering lyrics to an empty house. “I wanna love, I don’t wanna cry/ Don’t want these tears inside my eyes, yeah/ Don’t wanna wake up and feel insecure/ I wanna sing, I wanna dance/ I wanna feel love inside my hands again/ I just wanna feel beautiful,” she sings in a clear voice, with Sheeran joining in on the wordless bit of the chorus.
