Recorded for SiriusXMU, the acoustic cover stays loyal to Stevens’ folksy original, with Michelle Zauner’s vocals equally as floaty above the light guitar and piano.
Listen to the cover below:
Zauner’s cover of ‘Romulus’ follows on from a recent live rendition of Dolly Parton’s ‘Here You Come Again’, performed while on tour. Also while travelling around the US, her old workplace, Philadelphia venue Union Transfer, renamed its cloakroom after Zauner.
Japanese Breakfast released her third studio album, ‘Jubilee’, back in June. The record was given four stars from NME upon its release and described as “a brilliantly forward-thinking stab at creating pure joy”.
“After making her name writing about the most difficult topics possible, Zauner proves here that it’s within your grasp to grab joy from that pain even when it feels impossible.”
