"What's wrong with his voice?"

Ask Woodkid (and all the other singers who crafted "weird" voices in the recording studio but couldn't reproduce the effect live)...

Author MrMusicdot ( ago)
his voice sounds like shit

Author poop alover ( ago)

Author agustin oviedo ( ago)
That trap part just kills this song imo

Author Tiago Fonseca ( ago)

Love this for a sad song 🤗🤗.

This song reminds me of my former relationship, its as if he's written for me! Beautiful!

Author Declan Wall ( ago)
incredible performance
a lot of the comments are saying he struggled but I only noticed maybe 2 hiccups, the rest is just it sounding different to the album track or an artistic change in the voice he sings with which is the case 99% of the time with live performances
he held all the right notes and held so much emotion in his voice at the same time
I'll say it again, incredible performance

It very difficult to perform this song live. so he did his best ! I love you no matter what James.

sounds like a James Mcmorrow rip off really.

Author Henri Pascal ( ago)
The lyrics are from one of Bill Withers' Greats- Hope she'll be happier with him. Check out his live performance of them in Zaire 1972

Shoutout to Jon Risinger on the drums.

Author Duncan Toms ( ago)
Anyone know the name of the other keyboardist?

Author Discobiskits ( ago)
Modern Soul is my favourite on the album

Author Amy Nero ( ago)
honestly i wasnt 100% sure first time listening. but after a few listens i thought "why not play with the vocal lines?" i got the impression he was singing from both perspectives & wanted the vocals to show that. anyone that's heard all 3 of his albums can tell his voice has improved heaps so more power to him for trying new things :)

Someone give that man some reverb!

Author Mariana Gameiro ( ago)
In my opinion his vocals here are incredible as always

Author ER ZEIK ( ago)
james is that you?

Author kfc twigs ( ago)
something does not feel right about this performance. it's one of the best tracks on album, but he's too quiet here idk...

Author Dan Gimberg ( ago)
hm. i can understand its a new song, but there are quite some mistakes here. Also the mixing isn't exactly right is it ? vocals seem to drown a bit in the beginning by the piano. It all gets really good after the first chorus tho, so shit happens but they nailed it !

Author Nikita Void ( ago)
I'm totally mesmerised by this song, his vocals are on point (can you even imagine how hard it is to keep to all these pitches in one single track while performing LIVE?), the music petrifies every cell of my body, that's the end of me. Thank you, James. Pure magic here.

Author Jack Buckley ( ago)
Don't understand why people are saying his vocals are struggling at all? His voice is just a bit softer and quieter compared to the instrumental in this, a great live performance from James if you ask me.

Author Khairul Nasri ( ago)
he should have perform the track with Bon Iver

Author Hyunjeong Jeong ( ago)
What's wrong with his voice??

Author AerioNauts ( ago)
Hm, it's my favorite song on the album but he sings it a little odd imo.

I LOVE his new record. But I think he struggled a bit in this live performance

Author Discribouille ( ago)
Added value compared to album is not that big, I'm a bit disappointed... :(

Author stokecity2000 ( ago)
The start sounds like the theme to Animal Hospital 😂

Author Andres Fantino ( ago)
Muy bueno! Su sonido es nuevo y refrescante.

Author chaosinorderrr ( ago)
His voice sounds oddly different o_O

Author Tania Opiopchenko ( ago)
i wonder if there is any chance James will suddenly perform in any of post-soviet countries?

Author TheDragerboy ( ago)
Heard this last night as I was flicking channels. Epic tune, bassline and piano are spine tingling. Just bought the album :)

Author LePetiteRare ( ago)
Love loops.
