Hayden Thorpe & Jon Hopkins – “Goodbye Horses” (Q Lazzarus Cover)

By Claire Lobenfeld / June 25, 2013

Wild Beast’s Hayden Thorpe and Jon Hopkins have joined forces to cover Q Lazzarus’s classic electro-pop track “Goodbye Horses.” While most people know the cut as Buffalo Bill’s mirror-dance soundtrack from Silence Of The Lambs, it’s not immediately recognizable, as the two have turned it into a frank and lucid ballad. This version will appear as a B-side to a 12″ reissue of the original, which will also include “never before seen archival artifacts from Q Lazzarus.” Stream it below.

“Goodbye Horses” is out 7/2 digitally and on 12″ 7/16 via Mon Amie Records.
