Gryffin and Aloe Blacc cover “Wake Me Up,” originally performed by Avicii, to utter perfection for Sirius XM.
The magic is captured below, as Gryffin takes to acoustic guitar with an electric assist, and Aloe performs his famous lyrics with execution. “Wake Me Up” comes alive once again with this stripped down version, guaranteed to hit you right in the feels.
Aloe previously touched on the track, which is recognized as one of Avicii’s greatest hits:
Take the risk. As an artist, if ever you feel nervous about something, it’s better to take the risk than to regret it. When we created ‘Wake Me Up’ there was no blueprint for the combination of sounds and no example of success to rely on.
