Wow, That’s a Good Song: Ellie Goulding, “The Wolves (Act I and II)”

While the rest of the world is working off the greatness that was NYE, here’s an awesome, soothing song.

Yes, it’s a Bon Iver cover. Yes, it’s beautiful. Goulding’s vocals have an ethereal quality all of their own. It doesn’t quite match the eerie heartbreak of Justin Vernon’s original, but her rendition is stellar nonetheless.

Someday my pain, someday my pain
Will mark you
Harness your blame, harness your blame
And walk through

With the wild wolves around you
In the morning, I’ll call you
Send it farther on
