At a recent Spotify press conference, popular R & B singer Frank Ocean played a short set of songs, which included a minute and a half version of Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Trees.” Watch the video below.

The original version is a much more somber tune, but Ocean managed to inject some life into it and introduced the tune to a different audience. He continuously surprises audiences with his selection of tunes and keeps attracting new fans every time.
