Before the release of Swedish House Mafia’s “Don’t You Worry Child,” members hyped up the track for its “emotional” qualities and word even spread that it could ‘make grown men cry.’ Well, the original mix of the song has already received a fair bit of airplay in nightclubs and at festivals around the world, but now there’s an official acoustic version that really lets John Martin’s soulful vocal shine through.
The slowed-down vocal is laid over gentle guitar riffs, providing a far different sound than the original that you’ve inevitably heard by now. Axwell told Rolling Stone that “A stripped-down version of the song that captures the essence of the messages… was important for us,” and that they wanted to keep the song’s integrity after hearing the vocal from John Martin in LA.
SHM has also uploaded sheet music for the track to their website, which you can find right here. If you end up doing a cover, be sure to drop the link in the comments!
