Grammy-winning a capella group, Pentatonix, is well-known for dropping spine-chilling videos on YouTube out of nowhere. Their cover of Great Big World’s “Say Something” hit YouTube in early 2014, and without any warning immediately accrued 30 million views. Two years later, the video is close to 60 million views.
But we’ve never been so excited for new Pentatonix music as we are this week.
The group has decided to bring some holiday cheer a little early this year, dropping their newest album, “A Pentatonix Christmas,” just last week. The record is jam-packed with holiday favorites, sung in gorgeous harmony without any instrumentals, as a capella is traditionally done.
One of our favorite numbers on the new album? The Pentatonix cover of Leonard Cohen’s classic tune, “Hallelujah.”
This song is already beautifully written, but this may be the best cover of the iconic song that we’ve ever heard. Between the extraordinary four-part harmonies, and ever-impressive beat boxing, and the gorgeously shot music video, this could be one of the groups’ best numbers to date.
