Tegan & Sara have a new album out later this month, the Rolling Stones will probably tour their 50th Anniversary jamboree to pad their 401Ks a bit (which may or may not include a stop at Coachella), and Lena Dunham’s HBO show Girls premieres this weekend. Add all that up and you get the Stones’ soulful staple “Fool To Cry,” as covered by Tegan & Sara, for the Girls soundtrack that was released yesterday. This is intense brand synergy of the absolute highest order, encapsulated in a Soundcloud. It’s produced by RAC, who has worked with the sisters Quin before. Stream:
Tegan & Sara’s “Fool To Cry” cover appears on Girls, Vol. 1 (Music From the HBO® Original Series), which came out yesterday. Cop it at iTunes. If you are into that show, last weekend’s NYT profile on Zosia Mamet is pretty great.
