Robyn – “Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart” (Alicia Keys Cover)

“Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart” — with its themes of heartbreak, distance, betrayal and its thumping beat — is ideally suited to Robyn. It was a late 2009 single from Alicia Keys’s The Element Of Freedom, and really, the best song on the album. Robyn covered the song for the BBC’s Radio 1. Her version drops the huge drums, but her vocals sound shaky and vulnerable in all the right places.
