St. Vincent has shared a video cover of her playing Led Zeppelin‘s ‘Stairway To Heaven’ as a fond tribute to those who “fumble through” the song in guitar shops — watch her rendition of the classic track below.
“Since guitar stores have been closed, I thought you might have missed the sound of someone fumbling through ‘Stairway To Heaven,’” the artist, AKA Annie Clark, wrote in the accompanying caption to the clip, which she shared on Instagram yesterday (July 26).
St. Vincent further joked about giving an honourable mention to ‘Smoke On The Water’, ‘Sweet Home Alabama’, ‘Black Dog’ and ‘Wherever I May Roam’ in a nod to the riffs and songs that can usually be heard being strummed or played by customers in guitar stores.

Since guitar stores have been closed, I thought you might have missed the sound of someone fumbling through “stairway to heaven.” (Not pictured but honorable mention, “smoke on the water” “sweet home Alabama” “black dog” “where ever I may roam”). Love to all my guitar players out there. I know. I miss it too.
“Love to all my guitar players out there,” she added. “I know. I miss it too.” Watch St. Vincent perform ‘Stairway To Heaven’ above.
The episode will focus on the artist’s creative journey and vision, and will launch in the coming months on Audible.
