Clairo has released a cover of Carole King’s 1971 song ‘You’ve Got a Friend’. Shared via the singer-songwriter’s SoundCloud page, it was recorded in one take and features just piano and vocals. Listen to it below.
Multiple artists have offered their own take on King’s classic Tapestry track, including James Taylor, Dusty Springfield, Michael Jackson, Anne Murray, and more. Clairo’s rendition marks the latest in a series of covers she’s shared over the past few months, following her take on Carly Simon’s ‘Nobody Does It Better’, Johnny Flynn’s ‘Brown Tout Blues’, Anna Domino’s ‘Everyday, I Don’t’, and more.
Earlier this week, Clairo debuted two new songs live during A.G. Cook’s virtual Appleville festival. She released her debut studio album, Immunity, last year.
