Watch Sharon Van Etten (and a full orchestra) deliver a tear-jerking cover of LCD Soundsystem

The singer took on ‘New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down’ at the BBC Proms.

In need of a little blub on a Friday afternoon? This should do the trick.

Taking to the stage at London’s Royal Albert Hall as part of the iconic annual BBC Proms series, Sharon Van Etten recently joined the Heritage Orchestra for a truly epic cover of LCD Soundsystem’s emotional classic ‘New York I Love You, But You’re Bringing Me Down’.

The performance was part of a special gig entitled ‘New York: Sound Of A City’, which saw various modern musicians including Hercules & Love Affair and serpentwithfeet perform a range of tracks “celebrating the music of a modern New York”.

LCD Soundsystem themselves, meanwhile, have spent the summer playing a small number of gigs continuing their ‘American Dream’ tour. They also released a remix record of the album earlier this year.
