Watch Rhodes Cover Taylor Swift’s ‘Blank Space’
Meet David Rhodes, better known as Rhodes to his fans. Not only can he write introspective and captivating original songs, but he has a knack for covering other artists' work. Case in point: His interpretation of Taylor Swift's earth-shattering hit, "Blank Space," for BBC Radio 1. Check it out above.
While Tay Tay gets a bit crazy on her pop tune, Rhodes takes a more reflective and emotional turn with his arrangement. With Rhodes behind a piano, the track turns into a powerful ballad, not unlike many of the 25-year-old folk artist's songs. You can get a taste of what he's capable of with his latest single, "Turning Back Around," below:
Already opening for the likes of Laura Marling, London Grammar and Sam Smith, Rhodes shows absolutely no signs of slowing down anytime soon. You can get more information on Rhodes -- and make sure you're ready for his new album set for release this year -- at his official website.
