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.
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.
