The Muse: Simone Felice, “New York Times” (Live)


Simone Felice, “New York Times”

Simone Felice turns in a sparse, aching performance of this ballad, originally recorded with strings, piano, percussion, handclaps and backup vocals. On this live cut, though, Felice strips “New York Times” down to two basic elements – acoustic guitar and vocals – a move that brings the song’s sad beauty into sharper focus.
