Listen to Sleigh Bells Cover Beyonce’s ‘Irreplaceable’
Sleigh Bells have channeled their inner-pop talents with a cover of Beyonce’s ‘Irreplaceable’. The Brooklyn, N.Y. duo gives a mellow acoustic touch to the R&B queen’s smash, which you can listen to below.
‘Irreplaceable’ was the third single from Beyonce’s 2006 album, ‘B’Day’. As NME reports, Sleigh Bells premiered their version of the song on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 program. Vocalist Alexis Krauss gives a breathy performance on the track, which is probably smart since she can’t match Beyonce’s powerful pipes. Few singers can.
This isn’t the first time Sleigh Bells and Beyonce have shared a headline. They partnered up for a collaboration last year after the former Destiny’s Child singer was impressed by their song ‘Kids.’ The track was produced by Philadelphia DJ Diplo but has yet to be released for whatever reason. However, that hasn’t made guitarist Derek Miller lose hope.
“Obviously we’re massive fans of her and she’s a living legend,” Miller gushed. “I’d love to actually work with her someday when I actually get some creative input. I wouldn’t say that [the project] failed, it just feels like it never really happened.”
Sleigh Bells released their second studio album, ‘Reign of Terror,’ back in February. The band will kick off their spring North American tour in Toronto on March 26 and will be on the road all the way through to May 11 in Philadelphia.
