This Halloween, Marissa Nadler is gonna be Daniel Johnston. And Duran Duran! The Boston-based experimental folk singer dropped covers of songs by both artists today. The Johnston cover, “Devil Town,” is a Halloween treat. Per Nadler: “This is for Halloween. One of my favorite Daniel Johnston songs.” The Duran Duran track is “Ordinary World” — not holiday-themed as far as I can tell, but it is the best post-’80s Duran Duran song (maybe my favorite song in their entire catalog), and Nadler gives the already dreamy track extra layers of haze. Check them both out below.
