Watch Willow Smith Cover Joanna Newsom

Willow Smith’s musical decisions rarely follow any straight or clear paths, but they are as often unexpectedly beautiful as they are simply unexpected. Her cover of “The Book Of Right-On” from Joanna Newsom’s 2004 debut Milk-Eyed Mender falls in the former category. Each of the two brief takes Willow posted on social media this past week are sparse but serene, and faithful both to Newsom’s songwriting and Willow’s own voice. Check them out below.
