LISTEN: Sleigh Bells Cover “Where Did You Sleep Last Night?”
The track makes an appearance in the trailer for the new Blake Lively thriller, The Rhythm Section.
Sleigh Bells is back, and they’ve brought a pretty pissed-off Blake Lively with them. The band has recorded a menacing new version of the traditional folk tune “Where Did You Sleep Last Night?,” and the minimal, synth-heavy version provides the soundtrack to the trailer for The Rhythm Section, a new big-screen thriller starring Blake Lively. Many will know the song from Nirvana’s famous take found on their Unplugged release.
“The Nirvana + Lead Belly versions are total classics so this was terrifying but we went for it,” the group shared on Twitter. “Movie looks incredible.” See the tweet and trailer below.
