This cover is anything but ratchet.

Queer neo-soul artist Shamir, who released his debut album, Ratchet, last year, has shared his haunting acoustic spin on Duran Duran’s 1982 hit “Hungry Like the Wolf." No coincidence that he'll be opening for Duran Duran on their North American tour this spring.

“People say I ‘walk in the light’ or whatever, but I just have really strong confidence in the universe that everything happens for a reason,” Shamir told Next last year. “If you’re really honest with yourself and just do the things that make you happy, things work in your favor."
