The 1975 Give Justin Bieber's 'Sorry' Unusual Makeover

(Radio.com) The 1975 appeared on BBC's Radio 1 Live Lounge to promote their single, "The Sound." However, the British band threw in something extra for fans: a smooth jazz cover of Justin Bieber's hit "Sorry."

Driven by electronic keyboard and saxophone, the Bieber cover gives Beliebers the elevator music of their dreams. "Elevator music" is not meant dismissively: The 1975 do their namesake decade proud with the intentionally corny instrumental approach to a pop hit. Plenty of contemporary artists have mined smooth jazz for its ironic, catchiness and easy listening value.

Recently the 1975 appeared on Saturday Night Live as they continue bringing their alt rock to the mainstream. Fans can watch their groovy Bieber cover here.
