In case you missed yesterday’s premiere in Variety, Vanessa Carlton’s newest cover “Needle In the Hay” is now available to stream or purchase at all digital retailers. This is the second to last cover that Vanessa will release this year. Take a look at what she has to say about the cover below!
“This is one of my favorite songs period. Elliott was a great poet and the metaphors in this lyric split me open. This song is a juxtaposition because the song is about excruciating pain and the brutal moments of an addiction spiral and yet it’s formed in this drone-y meditative manner. Such restraint makes the listener have to move in closer. And then it breaks you. I hope I did him justice. He deserves the best.”
