Riit’s stunning cover of “Sail” arrives as a message of solidarity with mental health awareness. Her feathery-light vocals are a striking contrast to the staggering weight of the song’s lyrics, and uncover the grim vulnerability of the crashing, outsized original version by AWOLNATION. When listening through a mental health lens, “Sail” takes on a darker meaning, but one that is important to shed light on.
