Bedouine, Waxahatchee, and Hurray for the Riff Raff Share Cover of Big Star’s ‘Thirteen’

    Bedouine’s Azniv Korkejian, Waxahatchee’s Katie Crutchfield, and Hurray for the Riff Raff’s Alynda Segarra have teamed up for a cover of Big Star’s ‘Thirteen’. Check it out below.

    In a press release, Azniv Korkejian said that the idea for the cover came about while the three musicians were on tour together. “We threw the idea around of doing a song together but weren’t sure what,” she explained. “I was backstage in Columbia, Missouri when I realized it was the anniversary of Big Star’s ’93 reunion show that had also taken place in Columbia. I was fiddling around with the song in my dressing room when Katie and Alynda walked in. Suddenly I remembered there were 3 verses to split up. We played it as an homage that night and every night after.”

    Bedouine’s last album was 2019’s Bird Songs of a Killjoy. Hurray for the Riff Raff’s most recent album, The Navigator, came out in 2017. Waxahatchee released Saint Cloud in March.
