[Stream] Ellie Goulding- “Heartbeats” [The Knife Cover]

British darling Ellie Goulding stopped by BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge last week to record a session. As accustomed at Live Lounge, the session consists of an artist/band choosing a song of their own and a cover.  Ellie performed “Lights” a song off her debut album of the same name, and “Heartbeats” by electro-pop duo the Knife.

Much like Jose Gonzales’ cover a few years ago, Ellie’s approach is minimal—just her, an acoustic guitar, and a subtle male vocal accompaniment. The end result, like that of Jose Gonzales, is quite impressive. Take a listen to it below, and if you haven’t already, pick up her debut-album Lights. It’s really good.
