Sharon Van Etten covered the Flaming Lips’ song “Do You Realize??” for the final episode of the Amazon Original Series Gortimer Gibbon’s Life On Normal Street. Pitchfork premiered the cover today, alongside Conor Obert’s cover of Bill Withers’ “Lean On Me,” Andrew Bird’s take on Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me,” and the Avett Brothers’ rendition of “What A Wonderful World.” Van Etten discussed covering the Flaming Lips in a press release:
When I was asked to cover a Flaming Lips song for Gortimer Gibbons, I was really nervous. But when I watched the scene and heard from the people involved in the music, they really wanted to hear my interpretation of both the scene and the song. The show is sweet and smart and family oriented—and that is really important to me. So glad I was able to be a part.
