Sharon Van Etten and Angel Olsen Reimagine The Velvet Underground & Nico’s “Femme Fatale”
I’ll Be Your Mirror: A Tribute to The Velvet Underground & Nico is out September 24.
Sharon Van Etten and Angel Olsen have been on a roll lately promoting their big single “Like I Used To.” They recently performed it together at Pitchfork Fest, and it looked like they had a grand ol’ time. Today, the two are back with another new collaboration, but instead of an original song they’ve covered The Velvet Underground & Nico’s classic tune “Femme Fatale.”
The cover is for the forthcoming tribute album I’ll Be Your Mirror: A Tribute to The Velvet Underground & Nico, which is out next week on September 24. We’ve already heard Iggy Pop & Matt Sweeney take on “European Son,” Courtney Barnett with “I’ll Be Your Mirror,” Matt Berninger reimagine “I’m Waiting for the Man,” and Kurt Vile & the Violators perform “Run Run Run.” For their cover, Van Etten and Olsen make “Femme Fatale” less endearing and more unnerving—the quaaludes kicked in and the room has melted.
