Samuel :: "Starry Eyed"

Samuel just returned from a trip to Cape Cod with Ellie Goulding on repeat. He was thusly inspired to re-work Goulding's would-be smash "Starry Eyed." With a production assist from The Knocks, Samuel covers the song faithfully, leaving the carbonated chorus largely intact. In other places he annotates - a cascading synth here, a replaced vocal there - but these remain merely the notes in the margin. We thought this would be the year for Goulding, and amazingly people are still sleeping on it, but it could be a hell of a fall for Samuel. We'll keep pulling for both of them.
