Here's the single version of X Factor winner Matt Cardle's new single, "When We Collide." Released early this year by Biffy Clyro as "Many of Horror (When We Collide)," it's a song I like quite a bit. Cardle sounds pretty good it on. Reminds me a bit of James Blunt. The arrangement is not much different than the original version until the end, where they throw in the obligatory final chorus key jump. Always a welcome gesture in a big pop song. I guess I don't mind this, but mostly because I really like the original song. It's certainly a much better choice than giving Joe McElderry a Miley Cyrus song to sing.
