UK star James Arthur stopped by the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge and performed a beautiful cover of Emeli Sande’s ‘Hurts’.

The two have previously teamed up together on a track off Arthur’s debut, self-titled EP; that song was ‘Roses’.

The song was produced by Naughty Boy and is about the destruction that an affair can cause. Arthur says in the haunting ballad, “I could have chosen anybody, but I chose you.” Emeli Sande sings in the chorus, “smells like roses to me, two young lovers at sea.”

Arthur also performed his smash hit, ‘Say You Won’t Let Go’ which is from his album, Back From The Edge which is out now. Check out the music video for that song below!
