Kurt Schneider, MAX + Kina Grannis Reinvent The Weeknd’s ‘Earned It’
YouTube sensation Kurt Hugo Schneider -- otherwise known as KHS -- is at it again, this time serving up a mesmerizing cover of the Weeknd’s Fifty Shades of Grey hit, “Earned It.”
For the stripped-down cover, Schneider sits in on harp while MAX and Kina Grannis -- who are seated back-to-back in the clip -- handle the beautifully haunting vocals. Check it out in the video above, and then grab the song over on iTunes.
The new collaboration is an epic meeting of the minds; of course, it should be noted that this is hardly Schneider and MAX’s first time working together. The two artists previously teamed up on Schneider Brother Covers back in 2013. MAX has since released his Kickstarter-funded debut solo effort, NWL, which arrived earlier this year. Grannis dropped her most recent full-length, Elements, in 2014.
If you’re in the mood to see the Weeknd deliver his own soulful rendition of his hit song, you can catch him at this year’s Austin City Limits. The Canadian crooner tops the music festival’s 2015 roster -- along with the Foo Fighters, Drake, the Strokes and many more -- which was revealed earlier this month. It takes place over the course of two consecutive weekends: first on Oct. 2-5 and again on Oct. 9-11. Tickets can be purchased now over on ACL’s website.
