Ellie Goulding Strips Down Alt-J
  • TUESDAY, MAY 28, 2013

To say many artists have attempted to recreate Alt-J's musical awe through covers would be a great understatement. Since the release of their debut album An Awesome Wave last year a wild array of artists gave it a whirl - from Mumford and Sons to Paramore - and none, in our opinion, came anywhere near the original. Today, however, Brit songstress Ellie Goulding unveiled her cover of "Tessellate", and she totally nailed it. With the help of producer Xaphoon Jones (Chiddy Bang), Goulding brilliantly branded the song her own with a soulful strip-down garnished with slow, persistent snaps and a bluesy sax. Listen below.



Watch Alt-J play "Tessellate" and more live at KEXP.
