Years & Years Covered the Weeknd’s ‘Earned It’ for BBC Radio

Years & Years’ debut album Communion is a smash-packed body of work that’s sure to get the young U.K. trio noticed in the coming months. This morning, the group dropped by BBC Radio to play one of those songs — “Shine,” a Song of the Summer candidate if there ever were one — as well as a cover of the Weeknd’s 2015 single, “Earned It (Fifty Shades of Grey).” Lead singer Olly Alexander’s vocals hit similarly high-pitched peaks as the song’s original vocalist, making the cover a pretty delightful watch.
