Watch Madonna cover Elliott Smith’s ‘Between The Bars’

The acoustic rendition of the late songwriter's classic song was uploaded to Twitter by the 'Vogue' star earlier this morning (November 9)

Madonna has shared a self-shot video of a live cover of Elliott Smith‘s ‘Between The Bars’ – watch the clip below.

The singer previously covered the late songwriter’s classic 1997 song – which featured on Smith’s third studio album ‘Either/Or’ – when she performed the track back in 2013 at a launch event for one of her short films.

Taking to Twitter this morning (November 9), Madonna shared her latest cover of Smith’s ‘Between The Bars’ with her followers in the form of a self-filmed video.


Seemingly shot in night version, the one-minute clip sees Madonna performing a snippet of the song while playing along on an acoustic guitar. The video’s accompanying caption reads: “Strumming my favourite song when everyone else is asleep.”
