Bleachers - Only One

Everyone has polarised opinion's on Kanye's ballad "Only One", in that it's definitely an instant tearjerker; but his shaky autotuned performance kiiiinda makes us favour the covers we've heard of it more. And the latest offering from Bleachers has just blown us away.

Jack Antonoff's other band performed this low-key, ethereal version of the track for Transmitter Versions. The mix of swooping keyboard, husky manly harmonies and even a cheeky saxophone makes their cover sound like it's been plucked straight from that one album your dad wouldn't stop blaring in 1996. It's actually beautiful.

Have a listen below and let us know what you think; have Bleachers nailed the song, or is it still better off in Yeezy's hands? Let us know in the comments.
