Watch: Nightwish Frontwoman Covers Heart’s “Alone,” Nails It

0

Nightwish frontwoman Floor Jansen has posted an absolutely stunning cover of the Heart classic, “Alone.”

Jansen’s vocal performance, captured live in the below video, gives the heart-wrenching (no pun intended) original that special classical touch for which she’s known. It takes a timeless, dynamic tune and dare I say somehow makes it even more so.

Jansen explained of the cover, which features music by Joost Van Den Broek:

“Picking ‘Alone’ from @thebandheart as my second cover on YouTube felt like the right decision. I have performed this song with Nightwish, After Forever, and even at the Christmas Metal Symphony! So when I saw many of you requesting this song, I got to work! Hope you enjoy it!”

The first song in Floor’s YouTube cover series was a metal version of “Let it Go” from Disney’s Frozen released earlier this month.
