To mark the third anniversary of his X Factor audition, Ben Haenow has shared a brand new cover of ‘Wild Horses’ by The Rolling Stones. It’s truly stunning!
Fans may remember that Ben impressed 2014’s X Factor judges with a rendition of the timeless classic at his arena audition. The gifted vocalist had the Wembley crowd in the palm of his hand and his performance was greeted by unanimous applause.
Now, three years later, Ben has taken on the song once again. Showcasing his virtuosity and proving that music runs in his blood, Ben picks up the guitar and sings his heart out. Believe us when we say that it’s three minutes of absolute acoustic perfection.
Sharing his new cover online, Ben Haenow said: “Hey all, I dusted off the cobwebs on the guitar for a little cover of Rolling Stones’ ‘Wild Horses’. I hope you like it.”
Since winning The X Factor, Ben Haenow has certainly achieved a lot and it’s just the beginning for him. The charismatic singer already has a platinum-selling number one single, a gold-certified debut album and two successful headline tours under his belt.
Ben’s latest single ‘Alive‘, which was released earlier this year on the 7th July, is currently available here on iTunes and here on Spotify. It’s the first song to be lifted from Ben’s forthcoming five-track EP which is set to follow later this year.
In support of his new material, Ben will be embarking on a UK tour this December. The talented musician will, once again, be joined on stage by: guitarist Alex Haenow, keys player Daf Evan and drummer Tommy Sugar. More tour details can be found here.
