London O’Connor – “In My Life” (The Beatles Cover)

Last year we appreciated London O’Connor’s unconventional debut album O?, noting, “Not quite a rapper, not quite a singer, O’Connor’s voice thrums over beats and synths of his own design, ascribing to no creed, genre, or clear form.” Now he’s back with a Maida Vale session for BBC Radio 1, which includes several O? tracks and a cover of the Beatles’ wedding first-dance standard “In My Life.” It’s an intriguing take on the track, O’Connor wailing away at his piano on the edges of his vocal range, though the guy’s unconventional approach is definitely not for everyone. Hear it below at the 13:45 mark.
