[Listen] Oberhofer Covers Kanye West's "Runaway"

Kanye West's "Runaway" has been covered many times live by Brooklyn indie band Oberhofer, but now the band has released an official recording of their rendition of Ye's iconic track. While their version of the song doesn't evoke the emotional intensity of Kanye's original, the sprawling soundscape and echoing piano chords do the song justice. After all, it's always good to hear how other musicians interpret each other's work. Download and stream it below.
