Listen to Halsey’s moving cover of Frank Ocean’s ‘Solo’

"It still fills me with the feeling of home," Halsey told fans of the song

Halsey has shared an affecting cover of the Frank Ocean song ‘Solo’ – listen to her version below.

One of the stand-out tracks on Ocean’s acclaimed 2016 album ‘Blonde’, ‘Solo’ was co-produced by James Blake and featured additional vocals by Jazmine Sullivan.

Halsey has now shared her moving take on the track. Writing on Twitter to accompany the release of the cover, which in the post soundtracks a video of clips from her most recent tour, the singer expressed her desire to return to the stage soon.


“It’s moments like these I yearn for the comfortable chaos of the stage,” she wrote. “I sang this song to myself in the dressing room everyday on the last tour and it still fills me with the feeling of home. I wanted to share it with you. See you soon.”

Halsey may soon return to touring after the release of her next project, which she told fans last month would be “louder” than her 2017 album ‘Hopeless Fountain Kingdom’.

“I know you guys are anxious for new music and new memories for touring and travelling with your friends for events and pop ups and meeting new people for music video screenshots for group chats and late night,” she wrote in a message on Twitter. “Thank you for being patient with me. I want it to be perfect…”

Ocean, meanwhile, denied back in January that ‘Endless’, which was released shortly before ‘Blonde’, would be made available on a number of streaming platforms following press speculation. Currently, digital access to the record is only available through Apple Music.
