Marissa Nadler - "It Seems So Long Ago (Leonard Cohen Cover)

Spectral folk singer Marissa Nadler is quite vocal about her love of Leonard Cohen. She’s covered a few of his songs before, and now she’s added her favorite Cohen song, “Seems So Long Ago, Nancy,” to that list. It’s a pretty straightforward, lo-fi cover, but it’s extremely effective, stripping the already spare song to its bones and replacing Cohen’s signature croon with her hauntingly beautiful multi-tracked vocals. Hear it below.

Marissa Nadler’s newest album, July, is out now on Sacred Bones/Bella Union.
