"We covered 'Ultralight Beam' by Kanye for Spotify in July but need the prayer of peace & serenity now more than ever," Local Natives tweeted as they shared their version of The Life of Pablo's Chance The Rapper-featuring album opener (our favorite song from the first half of 2016).
A part of Spotify's new "Singles" program (which features original recordings from their studios), the California-based indie rock band stripped the song back to its most basic elements and utilized their ear for harmonies to flip the gospel jam into a gorgeous ballad. The only thing missing is Chance's verse—but we can't complain; this is beautiful. Listen to the cover below and be sure check out D.R.A.M.'s show-stopping contribution to the collection here.
