Chance The Rapper, in a stroke of pure millennial genius, has been doing an awesome cover of the song on tour this year with his live band The Social Experiment.

Last night, he released a jazzy studio version of the cover featuring guest vocals from the likes of Jessie Ware, Wyclef Jean, Francis and the Lights and Elle Varner. It's soaring and big-hearted and actually just restored our faith in humanity.

How have we lived without this song for so long? Thanks, Chance.
