Nelly Furtado first covered the Calvin Harris banger in 2012 on a radio show but is now just putting out her own studio version. Furtado strips the track's original bombast for a more subdued, but powerful acoustic take. She dropped a message to her fans on Facebook about her decision to release the cover:
I originally did a live version of this Calvin Harris' cover FEEL SO CLOSE at a radio station in 2012 which was posted on YOUTUBE. I decided recently to record my own version in the studio and post it exclusively on SPOTIFY so that music fans can enjoy streaming it. I chose SPOTIFY for this as they are very artist friendly and compensate musicians well for their art. I know some people have been using this as a "first dance" wedding song, and summer is here, so enjoy!
