Track: A.A. Williams Releases Cover Version Of Placebo’s ‘Without You I’m Nothing’

Thomas Williams

About to embark on an extensive US tour with Sleep Token, A.A. Williams today shares a compelling cover version of Placebo’s ‘Without You I’m Nothing’, released via Bella Union. The track comes accompanied by a typically intense video directed by Fraser West who Williams collaborated with on previous singles ‘Evaporate‘ and ‘The Echo‘.

Commenting on the cover version A.A. Williams says:

“When I first discovered Placebo as a teen, I felt as if I’d found a world just for me. Barely a day went by without their songs in my headphones, their explorations of angst, frustration and alienation speaking to me like nothing I’d heard before… Simultaneously brand new and familiar, I felt that I’d been understood for the first time, all the while being fed with musical styles I wasn’t familiar with – glam, goth, electro and punk were all introduced to me through Placebo’s melancholy lens… I’ve dreamed of covering a Placebo song for years. I think it always had to be Without You I’m Nothing, a song of longing and loss that for me will always feel current and relevant, as someone who always felt that human connection was the key to happiness – and as an outsider looking in, as someone uncomfortable in their own skin.”

All that Williams does so well as she delves into the soul of the track. There’s a sorrowful tension to her vocals over the droning guitars and rattling of the drums. Shimmering, haunting, demanding and gorgeous.
