The multi talented one-woman-show known as Bat For Lashes
has recorded a cover of Depeche Mode's
"Strangelove", by the request of Gucci. Yes, that Gucci. This song is set to represent the brand's new cologne: Gucci Guilty For Him, most likely for a commercial advertising the fragrance. The main hook for the song is nearly indistinguishable from the classically 80s original, but finds a unique footing in the lighter background bass and haunting, breathy vocals of Natasha Khan. Rather than featuring the heavy beats of the 80s, this version of the song takes on a smoother, more sultry adaptation. Check out the track below!
