In celebration of their excellent new album Present Tense, Wild Beasts have curated a podcast of their favorite songs for FACT Magazine that includes everything from Haddaway's "What Is Love" to Kate Bush's cover of Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" that she recorded over the phone. It also includes a cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hey, That's No Way to Say Goodbye" that they recorded for a contest winner and have never before released. It's a gorgeous cover that shows off Hayden Thorpe's lovely vocals and the band's taste for eerie, shivery ambient space. The cover starts about a minute in, but we highly recommend sampling the whole mix. Check it out.
Wild Beasts cover a classic.
