Listen: Lostchild - Skin
Following the release of his second EP, Being Loved When You Know You're Not Good Enough, independent artist Lostchild returns today with a cover of Madonna's Skin.
Taken from her iconic 1998 album, Ray of Light, Lostchild's cover of the album track pays homage to William Orbit's classic space-y electronic production style but with his own production stamp. Cut with distorted vocal cuts, it's distinctively Lostchild.
Speaking over email, Lostchild wrote, "a lot of what I write about is about struggling to connect with others, and in four lines, Madonna’s Skin sums up how I feel so aptly that it haunts me. I'm not great at covers because I always feel uncomfortable delivering someone else's message, but in this case I feel comfortable paying tribute to one of my favourite artists."
