Listen: St. Vincent - Lithium

Yep, she's covering Nirvana...
St. Vincent

In case you didn't notice, the weekend just past represented the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death.

A sober time for fans, it sparked all manner of tributes - from friends, from family and from fellow musicians.

St. Vincent paid her respects, treating fans in Chicago to a rendition of 'Lithium'. Sure, it's far from the most inventive cover but it's a neat tribute and faithful to the epochal original.
