(CBS) Susan Boyle has taken on a haunting, slowed-down rendition of Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence."

"The melody of the song is just beautiful," the Scottish singer, who found fame on "Britain's Got Talent," told Rolling Stone, "but really that lyric ["Words are very unnecessary/ They can only do harm"] sounds like it will touch so many people in the way it touched me."

The track, which debuted Thursday, can be heard at Rolling Stone's website.

Boyle's version of the song will appear on her third album, "Someone to Watch Over Me," which hits stores on Nov. 1.
