Listen: Jamie N Commons Covers ‘Stay With Me’

Sam Smith's hit gets stripped back...

Suddenly, Jamie N Commons is big business.

When not soundtracking his profile World Cup ads, the South London performer has achieved a bona fide international hit with 'Jungle'.

Yet he's not going to rest. Continually moving forward, Jamie N Commons recently returned to the studio to work on a special cover version.

Sam Smith's 'Stay With Me' is a tale of loneliness and attraction, the need for love and the demands of the flesh. Stripped down, Jamie N Commons delivers one of his finest performances to date, lingering on each word and using the full force of his huge vocal range.

A relatively straight forward soul ballad, Commons can't resist throwing in a few of his own influences – dig those Dr John style piano slides, for starters.
