CHVRCHES Cover Whitney Houston (Stream)

    Last night on Zane Lowe, CHVRCHES’ covered Whitney Houston’s classic hit “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay.” The band seems comfortable covering songs most folks wouldn’t think about touching, like Prince’s “I Would Die 4 U” or the Game of Thrones theme. Though this cover lacks the vengeful bite of Whitney’s original, Mayberry’s raw vocals next to the synths give the song a heartbreaking quality that wasn’t there before. 

    Enjoy the song below, and if you don’t enjoy it, at least it’ll inspire you to play the original. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better way to start your Friday.
