Bat for Lashes

As previously heard with her rendition of Radiohead's "All I Need", Bat for Lashes, a.k.a. Natasha Khan, does a frightfully good job covering other people's songs. And now she's back with a version of Depeche Mode's "Strangelove," which suits her just as well. Given Khan's ethereal voice and the gothic overtones of her own music, it's nice to hear her take on the sultry synth-pop of her forebears.

The song was apparently recorded as part of a promotion for a new Gucci fragrance (perfumes apparently need soundtracks, nowadays) and since they won't let anyone on the internet embed the track, head over to their site and listen there.
