Frank Ocean’s “Thinkin Bout You” has received a few different releases over the last few years, ranging from skeletal demo to lush studio production, but it remains pretty affecting in all those forms. Similarly affected, English R&B experimenters AlunaGeorge took to a BBC radio show to perform a cover of the song, which replaces Ocean’s understated arrangement with something more uptempo in a glitchier, funkier way. It’s a version you might have more fun listening to with other people rather than the lonely bedroom sobbing Ocean’s take is likely to inspire. (Or maybe you’re better at controlling your emotions; who knows?) Anyways, listen to it over and over again, and allow yourself to feel things.
