Susan Calloway Reworks Final Fantasy XIV’s “Answers”

Simply beautiful reworking of the original
Susan Calloway

Susan Calloway’s performances of “Answers” from Final Fantasy XIV have been some of my favourite live performances in the Final Fantasy Symphonic Suite series – she’s stunning live. It’s with fascination then, that the absolutely huge track has been reworked by Susan to become a haunting piano, vocal and string piece.

The stand alone single, out now, is utterly emotional but now in a different way. This time it’s lamentful, mourning and delicate for the most part. Instead of a huge orchestra, there’s a powerful backing choir montage of Susan’s and small string arrangement that never overtakes the piano and voice. It’s fantastic and the teaser doesn’t give it justice.
