Watch Bat for Lashes’ Enchanting Cover of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rhiannon’

bat for lashes, fleetwood mac, rhiannon

Bat for Lashes knelt at the altar of Stevie Nicks last night (August 13), covering Fleetwood Mac’s classic “Rhiannon” during a gig at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London. “This is a one-off cover we have never played before,” Natasha Khan told the crowd, according to the NME. “It’s a song by one of my favorite ladies so I’m going to try and do it some justice.” The Haunted Man conjurer then drifted into a bewitching, piano-led rendition of the 1975 tune. Watch the performance via the fan-shot footage above. The visuals are fuzzy and the camera’s far from the stage, but the audio comes through clearly enough. And even with the less-than-stellar quality, this homage still tops those regrettable Fleetwood Mac tribute albums from last year.
