Listen: Darren Hayes – Angel (Madonna cover)

We missed the video premiere of Darren Hayes‘s new single ‘Talk Talk Talk’ when we were out at Glastonbury, so if you haven’t seen it yet, here it is. But more interestingly, the single comes with a cover of Madonna‘s 1985 ‘Angel‘ as the b-side. And we’re quite taken with his version. What do you think?

Madonna fansite Madonnalicious asked Darren why he wanted to cover the Madonna track:

It was one of the first records I ever bought and one of the first songs I wish I’d written. As a kid – without much money and with nothing but a pocket full of dreams – I would imagine that it was me up there singing. The 12inch version especially cast a spell on me. It was a pivotal time in my life when I started to realise that this is what I wanted to do for a living.

As an adult with my own career, recording a cover version ‘Angel’ was like coming full circle. Like a Virgin is still one of my favourite Madonna albums and ‘Angel’ remains probably my favourite Madonna song of all time.

Talk Talk Talk

‘Talk, Talk, Talk’ is available on iTunes now.
