You probably won’t be hearing it in your house of worship anytime soon, but Ellie Goulding’s cover of Hozier’s “Take Me to Church” is proof that there might be a higher power after all. Posted to her SoundCloud earlier today, Goulding’s rendition reminds us why we love her so much. In just over four minutes, she transforms the slow, indie hit you’ve been hearing for the last ever into a hypnotic, electric slow jam. While we deliberate whether a remake can truly upstage an original, you should probably count your blessings and listen. Hail Ellie, full of grace!
