Ellie Goulding’s delicately smoky voice certainly has an almost spooky quality about it — and with her most recent cover, it sounds like she’s putting it to good use.
A few hours ago, Goulding posted this cover of Hozier’s mega-hit “Take Me To Church” on her SoundCloud page.

However, in her version, Goulding eschewed the gospel aesthetic and instead wrapped her voice in deep synths and snaps.
