Machine Gun Kelly Has Released A Moody Cover Of Frank Ocean’s ‘Swim Good’

A wonderful little homage.

Machine Gun Kelly has released a new track, and it's a cover of a modern classic.

He has taken on Frank Ocean's beautiful 2011 track 'Swim Good', but transformed it from a synth-laden slow-burner to a moody acoustic number. Softly picked guitars that blend into classic trap beats, it feels like a return to the flow and feel of some of MGK's earlier material.

It's something that nobody saw coming, but it's something incredibly welcome.

Plus, the video is gorgeous as well. Have a watch below:

And here's the original for you:

MGK revealed that he will be releasing two albums this year, including the previously announced 'Born With Horns'.

Here's 'papercuts' which was released last year.
