A.A. Williams – Without You I’m Nothing; New track/tour news

New cover version by A.A. Williams is a typically dark and brooding adventure.

About to set out on an extensive US tour with Sleep Token, A.A. Williams today shares a compelling cover version of Placebo’s Without You I’m Nothing, released via Bella Union. The track comes accompanied by a typically intense video directed by Fraser West with whom Williams collaborated on previous singles Evaporate and The Echo.

Commenting on the cover version A.A. Williams says: “When I first discovered Placebo as a teen, I felt as if I’d found a world just for me. Barely a day went by without their songs in my headphones, their explorations of angst, frustration and alienation speaking to me like nothing I’d heard before… Simultaneously brand new and familiar, I felt that I’d been understood for the first time, all the while being fed with musical styles I wasn’t familiar with – glam, goth, electro and punk were all introduced to me through Placebo’s melancholy lens… I’ve dreamed of covering a Placebo song for years.”

She adds: “I think it always had to be Without You I’m Nothing, a song of longing and loss that for me will always feel current and relevant, as someone who always felt that human connection was the key to happiness – and as an outsider looking in, as someone uncomfortable in their own skin.

Additionally, A.A. Williams has announced news of a UK and European tour for November and December including a headline show at The Dome in North London. Support is from the excellent Kalandra – dates and info below:
