Passion Pit may be an arena-sized acthow that happened is still a little mind-boggling — but main man Michael Angelakos recently scaled back for a gentle cover of fun.'s anthemic "Carry On." The Gossamer singer, whose vocals are usually more than a little helium-juiced, performed a stripped-down version of the Some Nights epic for Vevo's "Unexpected Covers" series, armed with nothing but a piano and four back-up singers. "I think it's one of the prettiest songs on the radio," Angelakos says in the just-released video. "I think pared down like this, you can hear it for the brilliant song that it is." Watch it above.
