William Fitzsimmons covers Kanye West

The era of the soulful acoustic hip-hop cover hasn’t ended yet: Chicago singer and songwriter William Fitzsimmons has tackled Kanye West’s “Heartless,” and where Kanye’s version is defiant and angry, Fitzsimmons gives the tune a weary and sorrowful air.

Fitzsimmons, who has landed songs on “Grey’s Anatomy” and “General Hospital,” released his latest album, “The Sparrow and the Crow,” in April on Mercer Street Records.
