Japanese Breakfast has shared a cover of Bon Iver’s ‘Skinny Love’. The rendition arrives as part of a special edition of the Spotify Singles series celebrating the Best New Artist category at this year’s Grammys. Listen to it below, along with a re-recorded version of ‘Be Sweet’.
“We decided to record Bon Iver’s ‘Skinny Love’ because it felt like a very surprising cover for Japanese Breakfast,” Michelle Zauner said in a statement. “It’s so moving and sparse. We felt we could add some interesting instrumentation to the track and celebrate our fellow label mate Bon Iver.”
Fellow BNA nominee FINNEAS also covered a Bon Iver song for the series, offering his take on ‘Flume’. Earlier this week, Arlo Parks shared her version of KAYTRANADA and Syd’s ‘You’re the One’. The 64th annual Grammy Awards take place this Sunday, April 3.
Last year, Japanese Breakfast collaborated with Spotify for their Live at Electric Lady EP series.
