Every Breath You Take: Jedward’s John Grimes Releases Previously Unseen HD Acoustic Cover Of The Police Classic

Jedward have kept their fans entertained during the COVID-19 quarantine, which they had been spending in Los Angeles, with best friend, actress Tara Reid, during which time they were interviewed on ITV’s ‘ITV’s ‘Loose Women’. Now back in Dublin, John has uploaded an acoustic guitar cover of The Police classic, ‘Every Breath You Take’.

John had previously uploaded a version of the cover two years ago, but only to Twitter. This HD version, was performed with open strings, as opposed to the muted string method normally applied to the song.

Singing direct to his phone, and uploaded without any studio editing, the song highlights John’s crisp, clear vocals and mesmerising guitar playing.

The Police cover is the latest in a series uploaded to Jedward’s main YouTube channel, JedwardTV, and follows on from John’s cover of another classic song, U2’s ‘Sometimes You Can’t Make It On Your Own’, which was released last week.
