Last month, Strand of Oaks shared “Radio Kids”, the anthemic lead single from upcoming LP Hard Love. Now, Brussels’ AB Session has shared a stripped-down performance of the track that forgoes the blaring guitars and drums in favor of an arresting piano ballad. Where the full band version feels inviting and celebratory, this renditioin is stark and meditative, allowing its nostalgic lyrics to take on new meaning.

It’s a bit of a tear-jerker, so if you don’t feel like sobbing at your desk, this is definitely NSFW. If you are, in fact, prepared, then grab a box of tissues and stream the session below. Hard Love is out February 17th via Dead Oceans records. The following week, Strand of Oaks will embark on a world tour that includes a headlining stop at Union Transfer on March 3rd. For tickets and more information, head over to XPN’s Concert Calendar.
