Bartees Strange has recorded a cover of Bon Iver’s ‘Skinny Love’ for SiriusXMU Sessions from his basement studio. Check out his acoustic rendition of the For Emma, Forever Ago track below.
Bartees Strange wrote on Twitter: “Justin Vernon low key shook my little Black world in college when I heard this song—so this was a pleasure to do. ❤️✨.” On Instagram, he added, “I just fucking love Justin Vernon so when they said I could do this one I was like hell yeah. I always try to do cool arrangements of things but this one is just so good on its own. Such a special tune—so glad I could do it.”
Last year, Bartees Strange released his studio debut Live Forever as well as an EP of The National covers. He recently remixed Homeschool’s track ‘Smartest Man’. Revisit our Artist Spotlight Q&A with Bartees Strange.
