“Hallelujah” is probably one of the most overplayed songs on the radio. That is a shame because Leonard Cohen did an amazing job writing and performing it. Now, Caleb Hyles along with collaborators Jonathan Young, Thomas Sanders, Dan Vasc, and Colm McGuinness bring out their version.
As covers of the song go, this one is actually pretty good. It captures the mournful tone and the lamenting vibe of the lyrics, making it come together in a crescendo. As for each individual singer, they are all excellent as usual. We get to hear them each individually as they take on a verse solo. They did a standout job, especially Hyles who concluded the song. He did the last verse with pose and I thought that was cool. That does not underscore the talent of the others. Like I said, they all did an excellent job and showed that you can bring a different sound to “Hallelujah.”
Check out the music video below:
The song was originally written by Leonard Cohen for his 1984 music album ‘Various Positions’ from Columbia Records. Its appearance on soundtracks and scores of various films and televisions led to a resurgence in its popularity with over 300 covers being produced. In 2014, it was voted as his number 1 favorite song by his fans.
