Beabadoobee has shared a cover of Daniel Johnston’s “Walking the Cow” for a special home session for Apple Music.
“I chose to cover Daniel Johnston’s ‘Walking the Cow’ because he is one of my favourite songwriters of all time. Doing that song reminded me how pure and honest his writing can be,” Beabadoobee explains. “My set-up was how I imagine Daniel Johnston would have recorded his tracks. I tried recording inside a little bedroom with a four-track belonging to my boyfriend’s brother for a DIY sound. I also recorded outside to capture the nature and birds.”
She also delivered a “proper acoustic” rendition of her “Care,” the lead single off of her forthcoming album Fake It Flowers.
