The band mash-up the iconic track with their own song, ‘Home’, taken from their 2010 album ‘This Is Happening.’ They also performed a rendition of their track ‘tonight’, taken from 2017’s album ‘American Dream’.
Rating ‘American Dream’ 5 stars, NME described it as a “melancholy collection, wound tight with opaque lyrics,” adding that “Murphy has always understood that the best pop songs mean nothing and everything at once.”
You can listen to both recordings from the Spotify Singles session below.

The new offering was revealed on Spotify late last night (Sept 11), and it sees the band continuing to channel the ‘Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino’ vibes with Alex Turner huddled over a classic piano.
As well the cover of the Fretwell track, the band also recorded a live take on ‘Four Out Of Five’.
The performance was part of the annual concert series, BBC Proms, held at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The theme of the concert was ‘New York: Sound of a City’, which aimed to ‘celebrate the music of a modern New York.’
Heritage Orchestra and conductor Jules Buckley presented the concert, while guests performed everything from ‘pagan-gospel and disco-punk to feminist rap or DIY indie’. Other performers included serpentwithfeet and Hercules & Love Affair.
