Ellie Goulding recently released a visual to her spin on Alt-J’s ‘Tessellate’, and the originators recently spoke on the cover to MTV while at the Governors Ball:

“Well, Ellie’s a fan of the band, and that’s really nice, and she emailed me, sent me a message on Facebook or something just saying ‘Oh, I’ve done a cover of ‘Tessellate,’ what do you think of it?'” keyboardist Gus Unger-Hamilton said. “I played it for everyone else and I thought it was really cool. Ultimately, it was nice of her to, in a sense, ask permission! She could have just done it and it would have been fine!”
