She’s already covered Velvet Underground god Lou Reed – so why not Depeche Mode?

The Britain’s Got Talent contestant turned global star takes on the dark-rockers’ classic “Enjoy the Silence” on her upcoming third album, Someone to Watch Over Me, out November 1st.

Slowed down to showcase Boyle’s church-choir vocals, the tune seems almost unrecognizable save for those famous lyrics. Perfectly timed orchestra swells add a nice emotional punch to Boyle’s soft delivery.

Listen here and tell us, what do you think?

Is this a good change-up for Boyle? While we’re on the subject, what other leather-pantsed hits would you like to see her cover? Or do you think she should stick with musical-theater showstoppers like “I Dreamed A Dream”?
