Del Rey, who was appearing in BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, covered the Leicester band’s recent single and revealed that she was inspired to do so after they played a version of her single ‘Video Games’ in the same setting.
She told Fearne Cotton of why she’d decided to cover Kasabian: “I really loved it when they covered ‘Video Games’, I thought that was great.”
All of my boyfriends had loved Kasabian and I’d never listened to them. I started and I really like this song. I love this song and I love the melody, I love the way the boys sing it.
