Watch The 1975 Cover Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next”

The 1975 covered Ariana Grande’s smash “thank u, next” as part of their Live Lounge performance for BBC Radio 1. BBC shared a clip of the cover performance, but the entire session is available on their site. The band also played tracks from their forthcoming album A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, out this Friday, Nov. 30.

Singer Matty Healy referred to Grande as a “main protagonist,” saying that she’s “the person I see spoken about most. And somebody I’ve started to really care about for some reason. She’s had a right old tough time and I like her a lot. I think she’s cool. And she’s got a great voice. And I don’t. So I’m gonna sing one of her songs.”

Check out the band’s “thank u, next” cover (and a 2013 performance from the Paste archives) below. You can hear the entire performance via the BBC here—the session starts at 2:04:00, with “thank u, next” at 2:23:45.
