It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Bat For Lashes. Sure, we’ve been making do with “Daniel” covers (1, 2), but her own covers have been missed. Her cover of Depeche Mode’s “Strangelove” finds her back at her best though. Thumping bass, ominous guitar effects, and Natasha Khan haunted-pop vocals return in full force.
The cover comes courtesy of Gucci, who are using it to advertise their new Guilty. Normally we avoid randomly pushing products, but we love this cover so much we’ll gladly shill. Go buy Guilty! We think it’s a perfume or cologne or something.
