Coldplay‘s Chris Martin performed a cover of Paul Simon‘s classic song “Graceland” today on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. Backed by horns and a choir, Martin lends the song a hushed, yet soulful acoustic touch. Check it out below, joined by a rendition of “Hymn For The Weekend,” also as part of the BBC special.
