Cover versions of popular songs aren’t at all uncommon, but it’s not often that a respected tenor like Mark Vincent gets in on the act.

With his unique take on Tones and I’s world beating smash Dance Monkey, he not only renders the song in a totally different light, but he also proves that it’s no throwaway piece of pop fluff.

Says Vincent of his version: “It’s been a year that none of us could ever have anticipated, full of challenges and uncertainty. As a musician, I’ve struggled being not able to perform and bring happiness to my fans in a way I’m so accustomed to. I’m such a big fan of Tones and I and Dance Monkey – along with the rest of the world! – and I thought covering it would be a great way for me to bring some joy, light and happiness to what’s been a very challenging year for everyone.

Prepare for a slice of joy, light and happiness:
