Ellie Goulding Does Fabulous Cover of Hozier’s ‘Take Me To Church’: Listen

ellie goulding take me to church


Wow. English singer Ellie Goulding has just done a fabulous cover of Hozier’s ‘Take Me To Church‘. So fabulous, I like it much much better than the original.

Goulding has slowed the song down, stripped it back to its absolute basics and added a more electronic pop sound, yet also a sound that’s a lot more heart-rending and seductive than the Hozier version — particularly when she sings “Amen. Amen”. At least to me.

Listen to Ellie Goulding’s version of ‘Take Me To Church‘ in the Soundcloud file below. Awesome, eh?

And, of course, for another version of Hozier’s iconic song, listen to the man himself singing ‘Take Me To Church‘ live with Annie Lennox.
