Vagabon and Courtney Barnett have teamed up for a cover of 'Reason To Believe'

Vagabon and Courtney Barnett have teamed up for a cover of 'Reason To Believe'.

Their take on the 60s Karen Dalton hit arrives alongside news of a Vagabon livestream, which will take place on 29th January at 9pm EST / 6pm PST / 2am GMT (30th).

"I recently discovered the Karen Dalton version of 'Reason To Believe' for the first time," says Vagabon. "I became obsessed and so a few days after discovering it, I was encouraged to record a cover of it in my garage.

"The decision to have Courtney sing it with me came after we performed it together live at the Palace Theatre in Los Angeles on Valentine's Day 2020, a month before lockdown. It was fresh in our brains then so not long after the show, CB came over and we recorded her parts. Oliver Hill plays slide guitar on it."

Courtney adds: "I'm a huge fan of Vagabon and Karen Dalton so this was a dream. They both have a voice that absolutely knocks the wind out of me. I really admire Lætitia and am constantly inspired by her songwriting, production, and our sporadic FaceTime chats."
