Glass Animals share soulful cover of Lorde’s ‘Solar Power’

Glass Animals have covered Lorde’s “Solar Power” and rerecorded their own track, “I Don’t Want to Talk (I Just Want to Dance)” for Spotify Singles.

Currently Spotify is running a special installment of their Spotify Singles series, where Grammy nominees for Best New Artist cover a previously nominated artist in the category. Today, not only did Glass Animals offer up a more sinister rendition of “I Don’t Want to Talk (I Just Want to Dance),” but they also delivered a soulful version of Lorde’s “Solar Power.” On the cover, the band adds a stomping beat to the blissful tune.

“I chose ‘Solar Power’ because in a time when we were all stuck indoors a bit – this song made me feel like I was on a beach….we all needed a bit of that,” frontman Dave Bayley says. “It’s a stunning song and then I just had a version of it in my head where it was faster with a gospel choir behind it….so….we made it!”

Yesterday (March 30th), Japanese Breakfast covered Bon Iver’s “Skinny Love” for the Best New Artist Spotify Singles series. Japanese Breakfast offered up a folky rendition of Bon Iver’s stripped back hit. With layers of dramatic strings, Japanese Breakfast add an orchestral, folk-rock flare to the tune.

In addition to Glass Animals’ cover of “Solar Power” and J Brekkie’s rendition of “Skinny Love,” Arlo Parks covered Kaytranada’s Syd collaboration, “You’re The One.” Parks’ rendition of the tune is a smooth, percussion heavy instrumental with her silky falsettos taking the lead.
