The Gaslight Anthem Cover Bon Iver's "Skinny Love"

Share on Tumblr

The Gaslight Anthem have released a stream of their Bon Iver "Skinny Love" cover and it's a breathtaking spin on the original. This is not an easy song to tackle, mostly due to Justin Vernon's unparalleled musicianship, but TGA have produced a rendition that's as true to their own style as it is representative of the song's. Frontman Brian Fallon's gravelly vocals add a piercing quality to the tune's whispered acoustics, and whereas the original provides a gorgeous blend of weariness and angst, this cover plays up on the angst and treats weariness as though its defeat. 

Stream the cover above and look for it on the Gaslight Anthem's Black Friday Record Store Day exclusive Hold You Up EP, which includes originals like "Misery" and will be available on November 23.
