Although we are a big fan of English singer/songwriter Ellie Goulding, we rarely get the chance to post music of hers. Luckily enough, she has teamed up with Brooklyn rapper Angel Haze to cover a standout track of James Blake’s “Life Round Here”. While this track has been remixed before by Chance The Rapper, Goulding and Haze give the song a twist with the production being varied (thanks to Noah Breakfast) for the two to offer an impressive vocal interpretation. The contrast in style from each artist makes the cover a worthwhile rendition and one that abides by the high standard James Blake created for the track. 

While keeping with Blake’s original lyrics on “Life Round Here”, Ellie Goulding delivers hauntingly beautiful vocals while Angel Haze ends things off with gritty verse in a double time flow. The pairing certainly do the song justice and they continue their streak of success on cover tracks. We’ll certainly be on the lookout for music from all the aforementioned artists and hopefully James Blake will release new music soon that will offer opportunities for more covers similar to this.

Listen to the “Life Round Here” cover below and let us know what you think!
