Arlo Parks has covered Frank Ocean's 'Ivy' for Radio 1's Piano Sessions.

The songwriter's stunning debut album achieved across the board acclaim on its release at the start of the year, and since then she's only raised the bar still further.

Returning to Radio 1's Piano Sessions, Arlo opts to re-work a Frank Ocean favourite, covering his 'Blonde' track 'Ivy'.

Following the Phoebe Bridgers enhanced Radiohead cover from September 2020, this is a spine-tingling take on Frank Ocean's original.

Faithful to the emotional heft of his work, Arlo steers it into her realm via a truly gripping performance.
