Idolator Interview: Marina And The Diamonds
We chatted with the singer about 'Froot' and her thoughts on pop stardom!

Hozier‘s “Take Me To Church” has been a chart and fan favorite ever since its popularity peaked in the U.S. last year, so much so that Annie Lennox added her own touch alongside the Irish recording artist at the 2015 Grammys and Ed Sheeran recorded his own version! Now, Ellie Goulding has released another cover of the powerful single.

The UK popstress takes Hozier’s original bold, compelling ballad and transforms it into an electronic downtempo that surprisingly brings out the track’s soulful tone and highlights the controversial lyrics even more.

Take a listen to the cover below, and let us know if you like Goulding’s take on it!
