What if Nirvana had decided to include their signature song "Smells like teen spirit" in their acclaimed "MTV Unplugged in New York"? What it would sound like?
Emmelie de Forest gives us a clue....
The winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 has released, exclusive on Spotify, an acoustic EP called "Acoustic Session". The EP features her brand new single "Drunk Tonight" (in acoustic) adding two more tracks, "My Empire" and "Hopes and Fears". But the biggest surprise is the cover version of "Smells like teen spirit" which we suppose will not offend any hard-die fan of Nirvana.
The acoustic EP comes up right after her new single "Drunk Tonight" and before her awaited sophomore album (yet untitled).
You can listen to the full Ep by clicking through

Early this week ‘Rainmaker’, the latest single by Emmelie de Forest and the official song for the Eurovision Song Contest 2014, reached the Gold certification.
‘Rainmaker’ was released on February 21, 2014 and until the Eurovision Final it had only had moderate chart success. The performance at the Eurovision Final, together with the 26 finalists, was an instant boost putting the song at top spot at the national charts becoming Emmelie’s second number on her homeland and her second top 75 single in UK (#73).
This is just one more evidence that Eurovision is a current strong force of free publicity for single releases.
‘Rainmaker’ was also the first Emmelie’s effort to reach the number 1 on our weekly Top 20.
Below you can recall her performance at the Grand Final of 2014 Eurovision Song Contest final with the 26 finalists.
