A.A. Williams has covered Placebo’s Without You I’m Nothing – and unsurprisingly, it’s absolutely stunning.

The new rendition arrives ahead of the London artist’s U.S. support slot with Sleep Token, and also comes with the news that she’ll be touring the UK and Europe later this year with Kalandra.

Speaking about the song, A.A. Williams shares that, “When I first discovered Placebo as a teen, I felt as if I’d found a world just for me. Barely a day went by without their songs in my headphones, their explorations of angst, frustration and alienation speaking to me like nothing I’d heard before… Simultaneously brand new and familiar, I felt that I’d been understood for the first time, all the while being fed with musical styles I wasn’t familiar with – glam, goth, electro and punk were all introduced to me through Placebo’s melancholy lens…

“I’ve dreamed of covering a Placebo song for years. I think it always had to be Without You I’m Nothing, a song of longing and loss that for me will always feel current and relevant, as someone who always felt that human connection was the key to happiness – and as an outsider looking in, as someone uncomfortable in their own skin.”
