Foals Cover Swedish House Mafia's One (Your Name) on Radio 1's Live Lounge

Oh wowee zowee who what and howee! On a recent trip through BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge with Jo Whiley, and as all guests who trek through her timeslot do, Foals performed a few songs from their recent album, Total Life Forever. On top of that, their cover song selection was one I had not anticipated in the slightest, yet it works quite nicely, as the boys give their best go at Swedish House Mafia's One (Your Name). Just...oh yeah!





The original track has been burning up dance floors both stateside and internationally, and one might insist that had this Oxford band created this song as performed live in the lounge, it would still be quite the chart topper it is as of now.


The  boys say: "It's got a really good energy to it...so we felt like we wanted to go back to our roots. It also has a topical reference to where we recorded the album at..."


Obviously, the release was crafted in Sweden. Obviously, I am 100% in love with this cover.

I completely agree, it's an amazing cover.

Seems kinda strange that as an Englishman I'm getting news about the BBC from a New Yorker but I guess that's the internet for you!

Love the blog.

Fantastic discovery ! Tx.
