The Strokes made their live comeback this week at a charity show in Los Angeles, where they debuted a new song called “The Adults Are Talking” in addition to a cover of Erasure’s “A Little Respect.”
The rendition of the hit Erasure track was sombre and stripped-down as frontman Julian Casablancas offered up a different take on the original lyrics. The cover revolves around a sparse, reverberating keys line, as Casablancas’ vocals take the lead. The entire crowd appeared to sing along to the intimate performance, making for a wholesome, empowering experience led by the renowned rock band.
