Breakout pop star Ella Vos returns with a cover of FKA twigs’ “Cellophane” today—listen here.
“‘Cellophane’ is the breakup song I wish I could have written,” explains Vos. “The simplicity of the question ‘didn’t I do it for you?’ gets me every time. It’s the question I’ve been thinking in my head, but afraid to say out loud, as I’ve been going through a divorce this past year. I read in an interview that FKA twigs referred to that question as funny, but also powerful—‘I’m more than enough, and you can’t even handle it.’ I couldn’t relate more.”
In 2019, Vos released the Watch and Wait EP, an exploration of her 2018 diagnosis with cancer through a deeply personal lens. The project received critical acclaim from The New York Times, Uproxx, who called it “cathartic and confessional,” Earmilk, who remarked, “[Vos] pours her life and soul into this latest, and it’s breathtaking,” and more. Vos, now in remission, went on to play a series of music festivals and embarked on a full headline tour. New music is imminent in the new year.
Acclaimed for her dreamy soundscapes and songwriting that explores modern women’s lives in their totality, Vos’ debut album—an inquiry into the postpartum depression she experienced after the birth of her son—was praised by the likes of Rolling Stone, HuffPost, Nylon, Coveteur, Dujour, MILK and Earmilk. Vos has consistently sold out shows across North America. With more than 250 million streams to date, Ella Vos’ songs have soundtracked ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” MTV’s “Catfish,” E!’s “Life of Kylie” and The CW’s “The Originals.”
