You may not know how to say her name, but chances are you’ve been seeing Kiesza‘s more and more these days, particularly with her recent cover of Hozier’s “Take Me to Church” and her single, “Hideaway.”

Well, it seems like the rising Canadian pop singer has another dramatic, stripped-down cover to share in the vein of her Hozier and Haddaway’s “What is Love” takes, this time of the Nirvana classic “Heart Shaped Box.”

The cover retains the darkness of the Cobain original, but strips away the fuzz and the drums and lets Kiesza’s voice carry the performance, which it is more than capable of doing.

Kiesza’s rendition of “Heart Shaped Box” was performed as part of her appearance on NME’s Basement Sessions.

Nice to see this next generation of pop star paying Nirvana with the proper tribute; kinda makes us wanna go back to the Bronze and slow dance with Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
