Watch Biig Piig Cover Big Thief’s ‘Masterpiece’

    Biig Piig has recorded a series of performances for BBC Radio 1’s Piano Sessions. Backed by Hinako Omori on piano, the Irish singer performed a stripped-back version of ‘American Beauty’, the closing track on her latest EP The Sky Is Bleeding, as well as Big Thief’s ‘Masterpiece’ and Beyoncé’s ‘Why Don’t You Love Me’. Watch it below.

    “That record kind of got me through a lot,” Jess Smyth said during the broadcast, referring to Big Thief’s 2016 album Masterpiece. “I only found it recently, like within the last year. You know when you attach yourself to a piece of music and you’re like, ‘Right, it’s you and me now, we got this’. It’s where you just grab on to something for dear life and you’re like, ‘Okay, as long as I can play this, everything’s going to be fine’.”
