Greg Dulli – “A Crime” (Sharon Van Etten Cover) (Feat. Ani DiFranco)

To announce his upcoming European and North American tour, Afghan Whigs/Twilight Singers frontman Greg Dulli put out a cover of Sharon Van Etten’s “A Crime” from her 2010 record epic. The track features vocals from singer-songwriter and longtime feminist icon Ani DiFranco. I didn’t think Van Etten’s song could get any heavier and sadder, but in typical Dulli fashion, it did. Covers of current stars aren’t new to Dulli, especially ones with the word “crime” in them. Back in 2013, he covered Frank Ocean’s “Lovecrimes.” The Afghan Whigs played “Lovecrimes” pretty consistently throughout their reunion tour, so perhaps Dulli will begin playing “A Crime” on his solo tour. Listen below.
