Weyes Blood Shares Cover of ‘When You’re Smiling’

    Weyes Blood has offered her take on the jazz standard ‘When You’re Smiling’, originally performed by Ella Fitzgerald. Natalie Mering recorded the cover for the new National Geographic limited series A Small Light, which features Este Haim as executive music producer. Give it a listen below.

    A Small Light tells the story of Miep Giesa (played by Bel Powley), a Dutch woman of Austrian descent who helped hide Anne Frank and her family in her Amsterdam attic. The soundtrack includes covers by Danielle Haim, Kamasi Washington, Weyes Blood, Moses Sumney, and others. Earlier this month, Sharon Van Etten and Angel Olsen shared their contributions to the soundtrack, which is out May 23.
