Valentine’s Day is a tricky one.

If you’re single, it’s a reminder of just how alone you are. If you’re in a relationship, then you hopefully don’t need a rostered celebration to encourage you to treat your partner with respect and care. It’s just not clear who the celebration is for, making it confusing and overwhelming and generally a bit shit.

Which is why the Stella Donnelly cover of ‘Love Is In The Air’ that went down on Like A Version this morning is quite so welcome.

Beautiful and sensitive, the cover stays close to the blueprint of the original, focusing on basics: Donnelly’s peerless voice, that incomparable melody, and the words, as beautiful now as they were when they were first written decades ago.

It’s the perfect song to send as a quick DM to your lover if you’ve forgotten to buy them a present, or to play to yourself, on your headphones, isolating yourself from the world and feeling just fine about that, thank you very much.
