Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith covers Sade’s classic ballad, ‘By Your Side’, taken from her 2000 album, Lovers Rock. The track is made available here as a free download.
About the cover, Kaitlyn says: Lovers Rock was the album I listened to the most when I was 15 and decided to start writing songs. Sade has always been a favorite vocalist of mine – so emotive and honest and true. To me, her voice glides naturally across genders and genres, which is a quality I also work to embody with my vocals. Sade is pure class in my book.
