There’s always something alluring when a musician reworks another artist’s song, and turns it into their own creations. In this post, the chosen sample is the beautiful piano melody from Sufjan Stevens Concerning the UFO Sighting Near Highland, Illinois. Listen below to artists’ Jaymes Young, and Made In Heights reworkings.


From Jaymes Young’s debut EP Habits of My Heart set to release September 30, 2014.

Jaymes Young :: Habits Of My Heart

If you love yourself
You can fuck yourself
Cause I’d rather be alone


From Made In Heights’ 2013 self-titled debut.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
