Kings of Leon are no stranger to the cover game. After releasing their single “Use Somebody,” almost everyone and their moms covered the tune. In support of their soon-to-be-released album, Mechanical Bull, the band decided to do a cover another song that seems to get a new rendition every other week, Robyn‘s “Dancing On My Own.”

The quartet slowed down the dance hit, allowing for Robyn’s dejected lyrics to really shine. Bits of the cover are even reminiscent of the aforementioned “Use Somebody,” complete with howls of pain from lead singer Caleb Followill.

Check out Kings of Leon’s latest single, ‘Supersoaker’, on the band’s official website.
