Carly Rae Jepsen Covers Years & Years’ ‘King,’ Strips Down ‘Run Away With Me’

The 'E•MO•TION' singer was the latest guest on BBC Radio 1's 'Live Lounge'

Pop darling Carly Rae Jepsen made an appearance on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, where she performed an intimate, striped-down E•MO•TION cut “Run Away With Me,” and a dazzling cover of Years & Years’ moody hit “King.”

Backed with a minimalist ensemble of a keyboard and electric guitar, Jepsen made the jam her own; it’d be really great if this became a consistent cover of hers.

It’s not the first time an artist has covered the song for the Live Lounge. Nick Jonas offered up a smooth acoustic cover of the tune back in April.

Watch Jepsen’s take on “King” here, and listen to “Run Away With Me” at the 2:01:05 mark here. (“King” starts at 2:10:21 in the full broadcast.)
