Watch Ellie Goulding And Kygo Cover Harry Styles
A true sign of the times
Harry Styles' solo sound lends itself nicely to moody covers. "Sign Of The Times," his debut single off of his debut self-titled album, packs just the right amount of British rock nostalgia and blues to make it a playground for talented singers. It's new, but it's already a classic. Ellie Goulding and Kygo's recent cover of it only solidifies that.
Goulding and Kygo are doing their rounds promoting "First Time," the melancholy summer anthem Goulding's featured on. The promo tour brought them through the ever-enjoyable BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge where musicians strip their singles down for acoustic sets and take stabs at other, typically unexpected covers. Goulding and Kygo went for Styles'.
It's a soft cover made delicate by Goulding's falsetto. She nails it, though, and wails with the best of them through the end. Experience it below.
