(Radio.com) During a visit to BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge on Monday (September 4), Coldplay frontman Chris Martin performed a cover of Paul Simon's classic "Graceland."

Standing at the microphone with an acoustic guitar in hand, Martin delivered vocals for the classic track that bear a striking similarity to that of Simon's 1986 original.

The Coldplay frontman was accompanied by a group of backup singers as well as a horn section. Watch Martin's cover below and enjoy the original version here.
