FINNEAS has shared a cover of Bon Iver’s ‘Flume’ as part of the Spotify Singles series. The platform is collaborating with many of the acts nominated for Best New Artist at this year’s Grammys on exclusive recordings, with each nominee reimagining one of their own songs as well as covering a track by a past BNA nominee. (Bon Iver won the Best New Artist Grammy in 2012.) Listen to FINNEAS’ cover of Bon Iver’s ‘Flume’ below, along with a re-recorded version of his own song ‘Medieval’.
The two tracks mark the first-ever recordings from Spotify’s new LA-based studio. “Honored to finally be able to get into the brand new and beautiful Spotify Studios to record these songs in these special arrangements,” FINNEAS said in a statement.
Olivia Rodrigo, the Kid Laroi, Jimmie Allen, Saweetie, Baby Keem, Glass Animals, Japanese Breakfast, Arlo Parks, and Arooj Aftab are also up for Best New Artist at the 64th Grammy Awards, which will take place on April 3. The ceremony will be broadcast live on CBS from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
FINNEAS released his debut album, Optimist, last year.
