Ellie Goulding Releases Cover Of 70s Classic "Vincent": Listen Here
Calm down. This is not Ellie Goulding’s first single from her next studio album yet. It’s just a cover. A cover of Don McLean’s 1971 song "Vincent" which he originally wrote as a tribute to the famous late Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh. Is Ellie also an admirer of Van Gogh? Ehh… who isn’t, right? But what’s the true reason behind this cover and why drop it on the eve of Valentine’s Day? I’m sure there’s a serious explanation. I’ll just wait for Ellie to tell it on social media in the next few hours. But besides the mystery of the reason for the cover, this Ellie Goulding version of “Vincent” is just beautiful. I hear her sing and I immediately get in a good mood and I feel like all my troubles are fading away. This guitar-driven, acoustic “Vincent” cover is both nostalgic and relaxing! A total must-listen.
