2:54 Cover Adamski/Seal

When ZTT bit the dust, Seal went from being an edgy urban electronica act to something more akin to a one-man Lighthouse Family. That said, 2:54 have channeled the bleak and sterile undertones of ‘Killer’ into their version of the song, despite no known access to Heidi Klum or taupe chinos. Gods be praised.

Newsworthy? Well, not compared with the release of the Hillsborough files or a dead US ambassador in Libya.

Still, in a different corner of noteworthy events, 2:54’s cover of Adamski/Seal’s ‘Killer’ counts as something to tweak the interest. Sometime back in the early 90s, before Seal became the purveyor of beige ballads and better-known for his dalliance with Heidi Klum than for his voice, the original of this track launched his career. Originally released as an Adamski tune, with Seal as a mere vocalist, the latter went on to be mentored/produced by Trevor Horn at ZTT.
