Apparently, British singing sensation Adele Atkins covered “Last Nite” by The Strokes on BBC Live the other night. For those of you who missed it, you can download that track right over here (mp3). Sure, covers are a cool gimmick and they work sometimes, but after listening to this song, I think Adele should stick to the genre she knows best.

If you recall, Adele recently sold out two shows at Joe’s Pub in NYC and she’ll be returning to the US in May and playing NYC again on June 10, 2008 at the Highline Ballroom (buy tickets).
