Ellie Goulding randomly posted a cover of Hozier's "Take Me To Church" on her Soundcloud earlier today and it's fantastic. She's taken the lyrics and gone for a completely different direction, it's slightly slower paced than the original and includes a trance like synth backing track added by Ellie. it results in a cover that wouldn't be amiss from her most recent album "Halcyon". Check it out here:
