If you've had the pleasure of seeing Lydia Ainsworth live recently, you may have seen her do a stunning rendition of 'Wicked Game' by Chris Isaak. Thankfully, she took some time in the studio to record said cover, which you can stream below. It's incredibly emotive and even a bit haunting, and it's absolutely worth a listen. She explained the cover a bit further in a press release, saying:

"The face is a threshold where a world looks out and a world looks in on itself. With every listen to Chris Isaak's Wicked Game I seem to always return enriched. It is one of the most intense and direct glimpses into another's hidden world. I hope you will enjoy my cover."

If you've yet to experience her live set, though, you'll have a chance to do so later on this winter as she's just revealed a run of new European tour dates. The full itinerary is after the track.
