For Bat for Lashes’ Wednesday drop-in on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show, Natasha Khan performed “Laura” and “All Your Gold” from her October 23 album The Haunted Man, and then surprised the host with a cover of Rihanna and Calvin Harris’ melancholy megahit “We Found Love.” Naturally, Khan takes the song to an even darker, more dramatic depth, accompanied by a barebones drum march and a surging bass line. Take it for a spin below, and then check out Coldplay’s Radio 1 Live Lounge cover for contrast.
