If there's anything that Ellie Goulding can do it’s put a new spin on a favourite. She did it to Elton John and she’s done it again with Hozier. The singer has posted her own cover of the song that has propelled Hozier to fame.
Her version of "Take Me To Church" is a languid, smooth, and gifted with accents that flesh out the aural space of the track.
Admittedly, the song works for Goulding. Her voice, though completely different to Hozier's, is nuanced and fitting in its own way.
The peanut gallery seems to agree.
