Regina Spektor – “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” (The Beatles Cover)

It’s a big week for Beatles covers in children’s animated entertainment. Earlier this week, Netflix began streaming the first season of Beat Bugs, its Beatles-themed cartoon. And now, we get to hear Regina Spektor’s version of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” which comes from the new animated adventure Kubo And The Two Strings. The movie, which has voice acting from people like Charlize Theron and Matthew McConaughey, comes out later this month. And Spektor’s slick cover of the song is both orchestral and quasi-eastern. You can use Spotify to check it out below, and you can also watch a trailer for the movie.

Kubo And The Two Strings comes to theaters 8/19. Spektor’s new album Remember Us To Life is out 9/30 on Sire; check out first single “Bleeding Heart.”
