Glass Animals

Glass Animals' Dave Bayley continued his excellent "Quarantine Covers" series on Wednesday (April 22) with a cover of Drake's "Hotline Bling," with some help from British musician and poet Arlo Parks.

After Bayley built the track in real time, walking viewers through the process, he launched into a dreamy version of the hit, eventually bringing in Parks for some stunning harmonies.

Bayley has been covering songs by fan request from his home studio; his take on Drake follows earlier covers of Bill Withers, Nirvana and Lana Del Rey songs. Glass Animals also released the first batch of songs as an EP on Friday (April 17).

Watch the latest cover below (and you've gotta love that video thumbnail of Bayley and Parks' variation on the "Hotline Bling" Drake meme.)
