What are the major differences between the original and revamped version of “Alcohol You”?
The major sonic change comes to the climax and final chorus of the song. If the original studio version left some fans wanting more, the new version has definitely beefed this up.
In the revamp, “Alcohol You” builds to an explosive ending. Extended notes are added while new string instrumentation dials up a sense of urgency. Added percussion also heaps extra intensity on the final moments of the song.
Before, some may have found the song to be slightly lacking. However, the new version certainly adds more oomph to the end and may help keep people’s focus for the full three minutes.
