Dead, gone, goodbye, see ya.
Off the back of last week's collab and pop-up store in Sydney for their new track 11 Minutes, YUNGBLUD and Halsey have torn our hearts to pieces this week on triple j Like A Version with an absolutely heart-shattering cover of Death Cab For Cutie's I Will Follow You Into The Dark.
The song is one of the band's biggest hits, and the pair have done the song more than justice with a combo of lilting pianos and restrained vocals. It's a stark change to what we know from YUNGBLUD usually, who's all rambunctious energy on stage, and Halsey, whose smoky vocals are always powerhousing their way through every song she touches.
With strings to match and the IRL couple's actual chemistry, the cover is definitely going on our list for best of the year.
It's also cool to see the pair continue to touch on their musical emo upbringing - even 11 Minutes utilises drums from blink-182's Travis Barker. The video for that dropped today too and interestingly, the music video's end matches the Death Cab song. You'll see.
brb, going to go cry in the toilet.
