Haim have covered Sheryl Crow's 'Strong Enough' for Australian radio station Triple J. Scroll down to listen.

The band recorded the track as part of Triple J's 'Like A Version' segment, where bands are required to record a cover version of their choice.

Explaining their decision to cover the track, a US hit in 1995, Danielle from the band said: "We heard it on the radio and forgot how good it is. It's such a good jam."

The cover version comes just days after the band say it took a lot of strength for them to hold off on releasing their debut album 'Days Are Gone' until now, with pressure coming from all sides to put out their debut before it was ready. Youngest Haim Alana said: "Everyone was like, 'Are you gonna put it out? Are you gonna do it?' It took a lot of strength for us to say we wanted to wait. People dangle a lot of stuff in front of you… there were times where we were like, 'Shit, we should just put it out already.' We're pretty much the biggest perfectionists."


The album, out in September, was recorded this year in Los Angeles during gaps in their touring schedule. Producers include James Ford, who recently put the finishing touches to Arctic Monkeys' fifth album 'AM' and Usher and Vampire Weekend producer Ariel Rechtshaid. Eldest sister Este added: "I think if we could we'd put it out tomorrow."
