Watch: Cat Power x Sky Ferreira Cover Elliott Smith

'Pretty (Ugly Before)' is re-worked...
Elliott Smith

Footage has emerged of Cat Power and Sky Ferreira performing an Elliott Smith classic.

Elliott Smith has been gone for ten years. Laying aside all talk of conspiracies around his death, the American artist's work remains fresh, stimulating above all inspiration.

Concerts on both sides of the Atlantic took place earlier this week, with a host of performers paying their respects to Elliott Smith. In Brooklyn, the Grasslands venue saw performances from WHY?’s Yoni Wolf, The Low Anthem, DIIV's Zachary Cole Smith, Marissa Nadler, Here We Go Magic’s Luke Temple and more.

Cat Power agreed to perform, and captivated the audience with a rendition of 'Pretty (Ugly Before)'. Sky Ferreira sang alongside her, and the results were captured in good quality by an audience member.
