Sylvan Esso Cover Low’s ‘Will the Night’

    Sylvan Esso have shared their own Live at Electric Lady EP, which was recorded at the famed New York studio. It includes new versions of five tracks from the band’s 2022 LP No Rules Sandy, as well as a cover of Low’s ‘Will The Night’, with accompaniment from the Attacca Quartet, Jenn Wasner, drummers TJ Maiani and Joe Westerlund, and guitarist Mason Stoops. Take a listen below.

    “Both Amelia and I are huge fans of Low and were so sad to hear about Mimi passing,” Sylvan Esso’s Nick Sanborn said in a statement. “I can still remember hearing The Curtain Hits The Cast for the first time as a teenager and being immediately struck by ‘Anon’ – they were haunting and visceral in a way I hadn’t ever heard before, and I’m still listening to them all these years later. So this past January, when we were putting the setlist together for the Electric Lady session, I knew we were going to have the Attacca Quartet joining us and immediately thought of covering ‘Will The Night’ as a tribute to Mimi. It’s one of my all time favorites of their songs, beautiful and simple and timeless, a light in the darkness.”
