Jesse Boykins III Covers “Closer” by Corinne Bailey Rae + MP3

A short while ago we brought you Corinne Bailey Rae’s seductive video for her song, “Closer,” off of her most recent album, The Sea. That’s why we’re excited about this new take on the song by soul singer and songwriter Jesse Boykins III. The Brooklyn based up-and-comer shows off his falsetto throughout the cover, which you can download at Soul Culture.

Also, if you’re a New Yorker or just in the area, you can catch Corinne Bailey Rae performing on The Beach at Governor’s Island on August 6th with Sondre Lerche.
