For those of you that think this is autotuned, please read this:
If you're talking about the distinct changes you hear in the words "can" (in "can you feel") or in "the" or in "restless" for example, this is a way of yodeling. I know it sounds silly but yodeling is described as follows: To sing so that the voice fluctuates rapidly between the normal chest voice and a falsetto. (source: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/yodel) You can obviously hear I'm singing with my chest voice before reaching "can" and then I quickly move the note up into my falsetto (head voice), which creates a 'yodel'. It's not autotune, it's merely a singing technique. I'm flattered some of you think it's autotuned but also slightly annoyed at what mainstream music has done.
Also, the guitar and voice were recorded at the same time, there is no way I could autotune a track that also has a guitar in it. I did add reverb which is "an effect whereby the sound produced by an amplifier or an amplified musical instrument is made to reverberate slightly" (source: https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&t...) because I found it to sounded too 'dry' without it.
Also, listen carefully to the pitch of each word. If you're the slightest into music at all, you should be able to hear that some notes are 'off' (for example "we" 1:24). IF autotune had been used, don't you think you wouldn't hear that off note?
