Philly’s Sweet Lights is at it again. Hot on the heels of this pretty rad video, he’s just recorded a cover of Sharon Van Etten’s “One Day.” Sweet Lights is solo project from Shai Halperin from The Capitol Years. Here’s what he says about the song: “Somehow I didn’t hear any Sharon Van Etten music until last week. Well…she’s great.
So I recorded this.”
