Our favorite Canadian songstress, A K U A, teams up with Rookie for a cover of “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Taking an ambient and minimal approach, the track is available as a free download for 24 hours, so go grab it.

Since last month’s release of her debut EP, One’s Company, A K U A has been grabbing the attention of listeners worldwide. A couple weeks ago, she opened for Solange in Montreal. The vibe was right, and she is now joining Solange on the road as a backup singer. The first gig was Pitchfork Music Festival last weekend. Atta girl, A K U A.
