New Fever Ray – Mercy Street (Peter Gabriel cover)

Fever Ray

Fever Ray has released her cover of Peter Gabriel’s ‘Mercy Street’. The track was originally mostly atmospheric as done by Peter Gabriel. This is what Fever Ray has to say about her thoughts on the track:

“We made it more intense and faster to fit our eccentric pecussionists and energetic live musicians. It is a monotone track but we worked with the dynamics trying to make it sparkle. I listened to it a lot when I was around 15, and it still moves me. It made me start reading Anne Sexton too”

The song will be released as a 7″ limited edition single on September 14 in the US via Mute and on September 6 in the UK on Rabid Records. You can download her cover below and hear the original below.
