In a somewhat surprising move, the ever amazing Arlo Parks has covered a fellow young British singer King Krule for her ‘lo-fi lounge’. This is the newest in a range of covers that go from Frank Ocean, Glass Animals and even to Hayley Williams. So there is a lot for anyone to pick from.
Parks has been a very vocal fan of King Krule and has continually confessed how much he has had an effect on her as an artist. So I am sure that this was one that she enjoyed covering a little more than her previous releases. This comes not long after she released her ‘At Home’ session on Apple Music. So we are being blessed by her.
This is Baby Blue by King Krule – one of my favourite songs of all time. It reminds me of waking up slowly, soft grey skies and swimming. There is nothing like sharing it with a friend or a lover for the first time – it gets in your blood and stays there.https://t.co/vQKfb3KLXKpic.twitter.com/uferZ9hTL2

Krule, real name Archy Marshall, released ‘Baby Blue’ on his debut album ‘6 Feet Under the Moon’. Since then he has gone on to release two more albums under the King Krule moniker and both have been a resounding success.
So far, Parks has only released the covers onto her YouTube channel but fingers crossed she releases them properly. This would see at least five top class covers will be available for our enjoyment. You can listen to the King Krule cover below;
In the last two years, Parks has seen her career go from strength to strength. From breaking through in 2018 to teasing us with her debut album almost two years later, everything she has touched has turned into gold. Including a song that was already gold.
This shows us that we could have a star on our hands here. Consistent music, individuality in her music and her voice does not harm anything either. When you roll all that into one package you get a star. Oh, you also get Arlo Parks.
