Oh, Lewis. You’re always doing things. Back in March we heard “Lewis Takes Off His Shirt,” the Owen Pallett cover by Sondre Lerche. Now we have the companion piece, also off last year’s Heartland: “Lewis Takes Action.” Synth-pop quartet Hooray for Earth just released a free cover of the song that eschews Pallett’s trademark violin for chunky grooves and guitar squeaks.

“This is pretty much how the song was supposed to sound,” Pallett tweeted. Guess he would know. Download “Lewis Takes Action” below.
