Bat For Lashes cover Kings of Leon – Use Somebody

Bat for Lashes (aka Natasha Khan) has recorded a live cover of the King’s of Leon hit, “Use Somebody,” for BBC 1. Last Thursday (4/9) Bat For Lashes performed a beautiful cover version of “Use Somebody” as well as her new single “Daniel” at BBC’s Live Lounge. You can check out video of her session (and interview) here. At the forefront of Khan’s stripped-down version of the song is her evocatively deep voice, crooning above an organ and a tambourine rattling in the background. Far less polished than the KOL version and in many ways, we reckon it runs circles around the original… judge for yourself.
