‘I wanted to choose a song that wasn’t too obvious for me as a singer songwriter, but also wasn’t too gimmicky. I realized 'Ya Hey' would be perfect and that I’ve actually always wanted to do a version of it anyway. The chorus, especially, I think is beautiful. I love how Ezra Koenig uses a well-known Bible story to put God in a different light – not a far-away, all-powerful being, but a lonely person, perhaps because of all the distance and loneliness that would come with being ‘God’.
