Ben Haenow Reimagines Marvin Gaye’s ‘Sexual Healing’

Following the release of his charity single If You're Lonely, British platinum-selling singer and songwriter Ben Haenow returns with an acoustic rendition of Marvin Gaye’s iconic 1982 hit Sexual Healing, exclusively for Double J Music's second Café Covers album, out now!

I am a fan of Ben Haenow's distinctive, alluring vocals and how they are packed with so much passion in this rendition that got me hooked right after the very first listen. To make the song even more intimate, Ben has stripped back the familiar production and brought his vocals to the forefront, soaring beautifully over the warm and intimate acoustic guitar-led production. Have a listen to this gem below!

Speaking about his captivating new cover, Ben Haenow said:
I’ve always loved Marvin Gaye and especially this track, so I really enjoyed working on a stripped back acoustic version for the new ‘Café Covers’ album. The mood on these albums is always a chilled vibe and though the lyrics to ‘Sexual Healing’ are pretty raunchy, I think they lent themselves well to a more vulnerable stripped back version.
It’s always an honour to feature on cool compilation albums alongside so many other great artists. Thanks again to the guys at Double J Music for having me on the cut.
