Australian radio station Triple J might have to consider renaming their popular “Like A Version” segment “The Black Keys Cover Sessions.” Two tracks from the Akron, Ohio duo have been covered during “Like A Version” sessions in the last few months. Aussie rapper Phrase gave us his take on “Tighten Up” in October, and this week former Australian Idol contestant Matt Corby covered El Camino’s lead single, “Lonely Boy.”
Corby strips down the song to a plucked guitar and a plaintive mode. It’s a far cry from the arena-filled bombast, but fits the lyrics well. Watch the performance below.
