Start Your Day With FKA twigs' Stunning Cover of Sia's "Elastic Heart"

by Abby Schreiber


BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge has a history of getting excellent musicians to perform covers of your favorite songs (see: Haim covering Beyoncé's "XO" or Charli XCX performing a punk-tinged rendition of Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off") and today they may have just aired the best one yet: FKA twigs covering Sia's "Elastic Heart." twigs adds a haunting delicateness to the track and watching the video of her performing live will send chills down your spine as you see her writhes and dances with a man in shadows. As is the case with many of these covers, you're left hoping that twigs and Sia think about doing a collaboration one of these days.
