Something in Advance of ARTPOP

As tout le monde knows by now, tomorrow Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP will drop, and given how impassioned was her performance of “Dope” at the Youtube Music Awards one week ago – musically she flies the highest when accompanying herself at the piano – it seems right to anticipate by sharing a memorable cover by a little monster calling himself Silverkenon, who I’d wager pays the song tribute from England: but whatever be his locale, his version is suffused with exquisite blue notes, though he blows some levity into it with a few vocal purple passages as well.
