Ellie Goulding is out with a new sultry cover of The Weeknd‘s “High for This,” produced by none other than the ever-Breakfasty Xaphoon Jones. It’s a four minute slow jam that infuses the atmospheric effects of the original with Ellie’s signature britpop sound. Xaphoon adds some of his handiwork, overlaying trickling vocals that manage to be simultaneously minimalist yet subtly complex. Ellie doesn’t toss in any dub step beats in her version, instead creating an aesthetic that makes you want to sit back, relax and take in the sound.
