Amy Winehouse, an influence for many with a soulful, jazz-influenced style and iconic voice, would have turned 34 today. Her tragic death in July 2011 rocked the music community, with many artists coming together since then to honor the singer-songwriter. Today Dua Lipa and Gallant have done just that with their cover of Winehouse’s “Tears Dry On Their Own” in episode six of Gallant’s “In The Room” sessions, the artist’s ongoing video series that has seen him collaborate with Sufjan Stevens, Seal, Jack Garratt and John Legend.
Both of these rising musicians have always impressed us with their own expressive styles – each has a tender touch to their voice that strikes a chord with any listener. Collaborating only serves to highlight their passionate signatures even more, with their soothing tones playing perfectly off of one another throughout the duet. Dua Lipa’s components bring a young Amy Winehouse to mind, with Gallant only reinforcing and complimenting those similarities. Check out the cover below and enjoy!
