The modular synthesist takes on an old favorite.

Fresh off two excellent albums last year, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith has released a cover of the Sade classic ‘By Your Side’.

Lovers Rock was the album I listened to the most when I was 15 and decided to start writing songs,” she writes about the song. “Sade has always been a favorite vocalist of mine – so emotive and honest and true. To me, her voice glides naturally across genders and genres, which is a quality I also work to embody with my vocals. Sade is pure class in my book.”

The cover is available now on Bandcamp as a free download. Grab it here and watch more of her modular synth work in action below.
