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.

If 2020 deserves a soundtrack this is it. Part commentary, part existential reflection, the creative ambition of this album shows what can be achieved in the face of adversity through the beauty of the human spirit. Simultaneously heart breaking and heart warming. Genius. Will Day
