Beabadoobee Covers Simple Minds’ Classic ‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’

It's a grunge-leaning workout recorded in Abbey Road...

Beabadoobee has shared a cover of Simple Minds' classic 'Don’t You (Forget About Me)'.

The West London artist recently dropped into Abbey Road as part of the Spotify singles series, recording some material in the historic studio.

She decided to include a cover, re-working Simple Minds thumping theme to cult teen movie The Breakfast Club.

‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’ is given a grunge-leaning workout, but that punchy chorus – "Don't, don't, don't don't…" – remains intact.

It's a pretty cool cover, and comes – neatly enough – as Beabadoobee is confirmed as support for The 1975 on their arena tour in the opening weeks of 2020.

Check out her cover below.
