Ashford’s take on I Could Have Danced All Night does more than add her own flair to the composition; it completely disassembles the single into a stripped-down, stark track. With the vocals placed to the fore, listeners will keenly devour anything that Brittain lays down here. With touches of early Pet Shop Boys and Rufus Wainwright present here, Ashford is able to moor this performance to a wider set of styles.

Sonya Alone possesses some of the same slower, more contemplative sound as I Could Have Danced…. Here, there seems to be a more radio-friendly tack taken by Brittain. The booming drum that plays at the back of the track is the perfect counterpoint for the calmer, more ethereal sound of her vocals here.
