elliehighthiscover Check Out: Ellie Goulding covers The Weeknd

Despite a heavy touring itinerary, and with the exception of a collaboration with her boyfriend Skrillex, UK songstress Ellie Goulding hasn’t released any new material since her 2010 debut LP Lights. But today, she returns out of the blue with a cover of The Weeknd’s “High For This”, produced by Chiddy Bang’s Xaphoon Jones. While Jones’ production turns the once-seamless beat into random bleeps and bloops, Goulding’s breathy vocals kick the original’s air of sensuality into hormonal overdrive. Stream and/or download it below (via Neon Gold).
