WATCH: FKA Twigs Covers Sia’s ‘Elastic Heart’

WATCH: FKA twigs surprise-released a new visual EP.

FKA twigs has got thick skin and an elastic heart.

Miss twigs stopped by BBC Radio 1’s “Live Lounge” for a performance of Sia’s “Elastic Heart,” surely one of the greatest pop songs of the last five years.

And how did it turn out, you may ask? Well, twigs trades Sia’s huge-voiced epicness for a slinky, whispery, and woozy subtleness, and we have to say that it works quite well, that it does what a cover should do and takes the original material to new places. So good job, Sia, for writing this great song, and good job, twigs, for covering it so magically.

And leave it to twigs to bring a backup dancer to the recording of a radio program. (Unfortunately, the dancer is not Shia LaBeouf.) Golden.
