Local Natives have shared a cover of the title track off Fleetwood Mac’s classic 1979 double-album Tusk. The LA indie-rockers are no stranger to excellent pop covers, having just last year shared renditions of both Beyoncé’s “All Night” and Kanye West’s “Ultralight Beam.” Their version of “Tusk” is part of a new Spotify series entitled Music Happens Here and was recorded in the same studio as Fleetwood Mac’s original. Check out the band’s Facebook post about the cover and listen to it below.
Today the band also shared a new original song entitled “I Saw You Close Your Eyes,” which requires you to actually close your eyes in order to listen to it. The website hosting the single uses the camera on your laptop to monitor that your eyelids are shut while the song plays, and will mercilessly pause if you do. Try it out for yourself here.
