Ellie Goulding Covered ‘Take Me to Church’ & It’s Better Than the Original

In case you needed further proof that literally everything that comes out of Ellie Goulding’s mouth is pure magic, it’s here: the British singer just released a cover of Hozier’s “Take Me To Church” and we have to say, she might have done it better than the original artist himself.

While we love the soulful sound of the original, Ellie’s take on the song is so hauntingly beautiful, it’s hard to listen to it just once. She took the rough, raw edge off of the song and added her own touch—her famously unique voice and the subtle synthpop vibe make for an absolutely hypnotic cover that we’ll have on repeat for the rest of the day. Put “Love Me Like You Do” on pause for a moment and listen to this new release for yourself, below:
