Sharon Van Etten and Michael Imperioli Share Cover of ‘I Don’t Want to Set the World on Fire’

    Sharon Van Etten has teamed up with Michael Imperioli for a cover of the Ink Spots’ ‘I Don’t Want to Set the World on Fire’. The Sopranos and The White Lotus actor Michael Imperioli delivers a spoken word verse on the track, which was recorded as part of the soundtrack for the new National Geographic limited series A Small Light. Listen to it below.

    A Small Light is based on the life of Miep Gies (played by Bel Powley), the woman who helped hide Anne Frank and her family in her Amsterdam attic. Este Haim serves as executive music producer on the show, while Ariel Marx composed the original score.

    For A Small Light: Songs From the Limited Series, out May 23, Haim recruited artists including Angel Olsen, Danielle Haim, Kamasi Washington, Weyes Blood, Moses Sumney, and more.
