A few weeks ago, it was announced that Sharon Van Etten’s epic is getting a fairly epic reissue treatment. One of the best parts of the reissue is that Van Etten tapped a select group of musicians to cover the songs on the album. So far, we’ve heard songs from Big Red Machine and IDLES. This week’s unveiling comes from none other than Lucinda Williams, who covers “Save Yourself.”
On social media, Van Etten shared the story of their friendship, including when they first met at a show in New York in 2016. She explained how she was shy to meet the acclaimed singer-songwriter at first, but that (as they say) is ancient history.
You can listen to the cover below.
In addition to the reissue, Van Etten will be performing epic in its entirety on livestream events on April 16 (the anniversary edition’s release date) and 17.
