As music battles go, it’s hardly up there with Biggie vs. Tupac, but there’s been some rumblings going on between new kid on the block, Sky Ferreira and the practically geriatric Ellie Goulding. Basically, Goulding wrote a song with Frankmusik called ‘Wish I Stayed’, which was then apparently offered to Sky Ferreira. She then re-arranged the song, added some bits, then took some other bits away and then added them again, until the song sounded a bit different. Then, apparently, Goulding was all like, “No way girlfriend” and took the song back, but left in the changes Ferreira had made, thus recording a cover version of her own song. Or something.
Anyway, it’s all pretty tiresome, but the one thing that does come out of it all is that we have a new(ish) song by Sky Ferreira to wrap our ears around (?) and having EXCLUSIVELY heard some of the tracks from her album last week in A REAL RECORD COMPANY OFFICE, we can safely say her album will be amazeballs.
Anyways, this is Sky’s version of ‘Wish I Stayed’:
EDIT: Some people in the know tell me this version has been floating about the interpipe for over a year now, so not only is this story a bit dull, it’s also old. HURRAH.
