Say my name, say my name... Check out my @DestinysChild cover on @Spotify👉https://t.co/osPAMfuKnv
This was one of those tunes that found its way onto the tour bus playlist rotation, it felt right to cover it for the #SpotifySingles and it has been great fun to play live. pic.twitter.com/DTZ9ot4LPe

Not to be dramatic or anything, but I really need you to stop what you're doing and listen to Hozier's cover of Destiny's Child's "Say My Name." The "Take Me to Church" singer just released the song on Thursday morning, and I have a pretty strong feeling that, like me, you'll be unable to take it off repeat for the remainder of the day.
As part of Spotify's Singles series, the Irish singer-songwriter took the poppy 1999 hit and reworked it into a smooth slow jam complete with breathy background vocals and the soft sound of an organ. In a short statement about his session with Spotify, Hozier broke down what inspired him to record the track in the first place. "This was one of those tunes that found its way onto the tour bus playlist rotation," he wrote on Twitter. "It felt right to cover it for the #SpotifySingles and it has been great fun to play live." Listen to the full track below.
