Best Covers: Glass Animals ‘Heart-Shaped Box’

A brilliant example of an artist making an iconic tune their own, Glass Animals’ Dave Bayley shared this haunted version of the Nirvana ballad as part of a series of Quarantine Covers. The looping music box tinkle takes the place of guitars, turning on an endless axis as Bayley sings the lyrics in a soft tone that evokes the cotton candy vibe of the Dreamland album that would follow.

Hit of the week: Glass Animals “It’s All So Incredibly Loud”

Glass Animals has shared a new song called “It’s All So Incredibly Loud,” which will appear on the band’s forthcoming album, Dreamland.

The track, which is available now for digital download, is accompanied by a video starring frontman Dave Bayley as he stands on a diving board, contemplating whether or not to jump into the pool. “The entire song is only about three seconds of life,” Bayley explains. “I think most people have been in a position where they have had to tell someone something that they knew was going to devastate them. Something that would change their life.”
