Pop singer Kelly Clarkson is set to cover Mazzy Star's 1994 single 'Fade Into You' on a forthcoming episode of US television show Nashville.

The singer is set to make a cameo appearance on the ABC network show playing herself, and will perform a version of the song with cast members Sam Palladio and Clare Bowen, reports Billboard. The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach has previously made a cameo appearance on the popular show, which follows the lives of a host of musicians and singers living in Nashville, Tennessee.

Mazzy Star released their fourth studio album 'Seasons Of Your Day' in September. It was recorded in California and Norway and written by Hope Sandoval and David Roback. The album follows 1990's 'She Hangs Brightly', 1993's 'So Tonight That I Might See' and 1996's 'Among My Swan' as well as the 2011 release of the single 'Common Burn'/'Lay Myself Down'. 'Seasons Of Your Day' features a guest spot from the late guitarist Bert Jansch, on the track 'Spoon'.

Ahead of the new release, Roback revealed that the band continued to write and record over the years despite taking so long to release a new record, saying: "We never stopped writing or recording. We just stopped performing and releasing things." He also told Rolling Stone: "This new album has a lot of different combinations of instruments, acoustic and electric in different combinations we haven't used so much before. It's kind of a subtle thing we're more aware of, but it's interesting for us to perform this music live now. There's a lot of subtlety in the music, and to actually put that across live, when it happens, it's really exciting."
