Listen: Lauren Aquilina - "Get Here"

Due to be released tomorrow, here is "Get Here", the stunning debut single from 16 year-old singer/songwriter Lauren Aquilina, a modern interpretation of the Oleta Adams classic.

Recorded in the space of three days in her bedroom, all of the funds raised from the track will be donated to the Meningitis Trust, a worthy cause especially close to Lauren since her cousin was diagnosed with the disease.

Claiming to be heavily influenced by the sound of Wisconsin's own Bon Iver, her enthusiasm for this style shines through, with the spine-tingling, ethereal harmonies kicking in around 2 minutes in - slightly reminiscent of "Holocene".

You can pre-order the track from play.com or wait until midnight tonight to download it from Amazon or iTunes.
