I was wondering when Sondre Lerche was going to appear this 2010. Better late than never as he covered a song from one of his favorite albums to come out this year. Here is Sondre’s thought process:

First I tried taking on Tightrope (Janelle Monae) but it sorta felt like covering Beat It or God Only Knows or something. Useless. Then I did a basement version of What’s My Name (Rihanna) but I drowned in a bucket of Julegløgg before seeing it through. (Also, while it is probably not entirely unreasonable for me to claim that “not everybody knows how to work my body”, it’s a tall order for a guy to pull off singing it. In the end, I returned to a song from what is probably my favorite record of the year, Owen Pallett’s Heartland, which means most of my friends know what they’re getting from me this year. And now you know too.

Happy holidays. Do stick around for 2011.


A fine gift this holiday and big ups to to stereogum for keeping their tradition of the premiering Lerche covering one of the year’s most popular tracks.
