“Sorry” is becoming a hot commodity on the cover song circuit.

Right after an all-star batch of celebrities performed a dramatic reading of the song, The 1975 became the latest group to take on Justin Bieber’s hit when they returned to the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge this morning.

Alongside a live rendition of new single “The Sound,” the English band turned “Sorry” from a tropical house jam into a funky jazz number.

“It’s not really like the song, but it’s good,” said lead singer Matt Healy in a quick chat with Clara Amfo before he launched into the cover. When they’d finished, Amfo confirmed that The 1975’s take sounded more like Dâm-Funk than Bieber.

The 1975’s new album I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It comes out February 26. Watch them put their own spin on “Sorry” below.
