PMA fave Bat For Lashes stopped by BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge not too long ago and delivered a beautiful cover of Only By The Night-highlight, "Use Somebody." Bat For Lashes breathes new, minimalistic life into "Use Somebody." Listening to Caleb's voice on the original make me yearn for a duet between these two artists. Natasha Kahn's butterly smooth vocals will simply melt alongside Caleb Followill's powerful instrument.

Bat+for+Lashes+Natasha

In my honest opinion, no cover will best the Kings of Leon version — filled with a storm of lusty, longing vocals. Bat For Lashes' cover is a great change of pace and is in no way a disservice to the song, but acts pretty well as a foil to the original.

Catch the cover and a bonus "lo-fi" version of Natasha's amazing "Daniel," all after the jump.
