Bloc Party Covers Nelly Furtado "Right"

Kele and his Bloc Party playmates take on punchy Nelly Furtado… Pow!

Those cheeky Bloc Party lads may be the indie rock darlings of the millennium (or something like that) but they also love a good pop song. Witness this cover they cranked out during a UK radio interview, in which they serve up a glum yet sparkling version of Nelly Furtado’s nugget "Say It Right." You can her their spare take on the tune here.

In other Bloc-Pop-Party news, evidently the band’s lead singer, Kele Okereke, is also spreading rumors that Britney’s new music is life-changing (or maybe he’s just jerking the Klaxons around) and he’s jonesing to work with Timbaland. Or maybe he just wants to get close to JT…
