about

This cover of Beautiful People is my way of saying “Thank You” to Mark Pritchard and Thom Yorke. I never imagined covering a song on any of my recordings but I couldn’t help myself in this case. I remember being in Japan and getting the news that my grandmother had passed away so that information combined with the Japanese jet lag had me terribly disoriented. This song was a part of my everyday soundtrack at the time and the lyric “I’m running blind” never escaped me so this led me to build on that in one of the sections. In the original, not only were the lyrics strong but also the way they were able to execute this sonically, visually and emotionally. When I finally decided to cover this, I wanted to do an arrangement that was aligned with the trance I was put in when I first heard Beautiful People. The entire A Loveless Sunken Sun EP is dedicated to my grandmother but this song, specifically, is the one I send to her in the afterlife. - Corey

lyrics

Hence my care for you
Beautiful People
You know you’re that
Hence my care you
I can’t go back
On all of that
Hence my care for you

That the love is ours
That the love is ours
A flap of the wing
And the chaos that may bring
That the love is ours
That the love is ours
A flap of the wing
And the chaos that may bring

Wake up my love
Please don’t be sad
There is no time
Wake up my love
Please don’t be sad
There is no time

That the light goes on
That the light goes off
Flies out of the window
And angel stroke your head

To know you’re that
I can’t go back


I’m running blind
I’m running blind
I’m running blind
I’m running blind
