Bat for Lashes — aka Natasha Khan — has released a cover of the Carpenters’ ‘We’ve Only Just Begun’. Khan started performing the track live around 2016, but this marks her first proper studio recording of the hit song. Take a listen below.
According to an Instagram post announcing the cover, the singer-songwriter recorded her vocals and the piano in Los Angeles during lockdown, while the strings were arranged by Hugh Brunt and performed by the London Contemporary Orchestra. The track was co-produced by Khan and TJ Allen.
‘We’ve Only Just Begun’ originally appeared on the Carpenters’ sophomore album Close to You. Bat for Lashes released her most recent studio LP, Lost Girls, last year.
