Pierce the Veil have released a short EP featuring their latest single, “Today I Saw the Whole World” along with an acoustic rendition of the song. “Today I Saw the Whole World” was included on last year’s album Misadventures and is one of the heavier tracks the band have penned (and arguably the best song on the album).
Thus, it’s exciting to hear an acoustic version of the track, which features a delicate acoustic guitar and scaled back vocals from Vic Fuentes. Whereas the original version finds venom in Fuentes’ words, this new acoustic rendition displays a broken soul. Vic’s opening lines of, “Baby, pour over / Tell me are we concrete? / What would you do without my perfect company to your undressed spine?” feel desperate instead of determined.
The best acoustic tracks tend to dig into new emotions that full band versions can’t completely capture, and “Today I Saw the Whole World” certainly excels. Take a listen below:
