Singer Songwriter Vagabon teamed up with Courtney Barnett for a cover inspired by Karen Dalton’s version of “Reason to Believe ,” which was originally written and recorded by Tim Hardin in 1965 and covered by a wide range of artists since. After discovering Dalton’s version, “I became obsessed,” says Vagabon, “and so a few days after discovering it, I was encouraged to record a cover of it in my garage.” Barnett 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.”

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.”
