Hello From The Dark Side: Alex Boye Releases African Tribal Star Wars-Themed Adele Cover


If you're a "Star Wars" fan who happens to be an Adele lover, this just might be the highlight of your day, possibly the on-loop track of your week.

Musician Alex Boye is back with another "Africanized" cover. This time, he is making a rendition of the Adele mega-hit, "Hello."

But wait, there's more.

The London-born, U.S.-based vocal powerhouse's newest music video also happens to tie into the upcoming "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

The song opens with Boye reenacting a scene that features Finn Galfridian unmasking himself in the desert, something fans who have re-watched the trailer may be familiar with.

Watch the full video below.

Boye broke the Internet as a mainstream pop artist with his cover of the Disney "Frozen" hit, "Let It Go," as well as "Peponi," a version of Coldplay's "Paradise" where he collaborated with ThePianoGuys.

Boye has just made his debut opening for Olivia Newton John at the Royal Albert Hall, which the singer calls a dream come true.

"I'm humbled by this opportunity to expand my musical scope and reach so many people who are enthusiastic about my new journey," he says in response to his fans' ardent reception of his music.

Boye's ultimate goal is "to make people feel good and give them a few moments of uplift."

The fans were indeed uplifted with news of this unlikely but strangely wonderful mashup. TIME even referred to it as "what the galaxy needs right now."

The release of the music video couldn't have been more timely, as the Internet has been abuzz with news about the premiere of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens." It officially opens in theaters Dec. 18.

Some of the premiere's highlights include the massive premiere tent, live First Order Stormtroopers and an interview featuring Carrie Fisher and Oscar Isaac.

Meanwhile, "Hello" singer-songwriter Adele recently announced her 2016 North American Tour, her first in five years. The tour kicks off July 5 in Minnesota and closes Nov. 15 in Mexico City.
