Lockdown seems to be agreeing with Jedward, who are using the period to stimulate their creativity while they are in isolation in Los Angeles. For the second time this week, John has released a video of himself singing and playing guitar, and also for the second time, it’s a song by a former One Direction member – this time ‘Falling’, by Harry Styles, which was released earlier this year.
Known for putting his own stamp on covers, John has given the track pathos and a passion completely different to the original, simply by slowing down the tempo. Shot straight to camera, simply John and his guitar and with no further editing, he has taken the song and with the strength of his vocals causes the listener to contemplate the heartache and pain he’s been through in order to make it sound this way.
If John decided to release an album of acoustic songs – whether solo or as part of Jedward (we’d love to hear some more of Edward too!), we certainly wouldn’t protest!
Watch and listen to John’s cover below:
Jedward released their fourth album, ‘Voice Of A Rebel’, last June, and have since been working on songs for their fifth album. You can stream and download ‘Voice Of A Rebel’ here, and buy the CD from Jedward’s official website. They will be touring the UK this coming August, with tickets and further information available here.
