Emily Haines And The Soft Skeleton – “American Dream” (LCD Soundsystem Cover)

Justin Broadbent

Last month, Metric frontwoman Emily Haines and her other band the Soft Skeleton released Choir Of The Mind, Haines’ first solo album in more than a decade. And today, she’s released something else: A cover of “American Dream,” the title track from LCD Soundsystem’s glorious comeback album. Haines’ version is a stripped-down affair, with just her expressive voice, some florid piano, and a slow-pulse drum machine. Her version of the song doesn’t sound much like the LCD original; weirdly, it reminds me a whole lot more of Destroyer. Check out her version of the song below.

The “American Dream” cover and Choir Of The Mind are both out now on Last Gang.
