Amy Millan Covers Death Cab For Cutie (Stereogum Premiere)

This countrified cover of Death Cab For Cutie’s “I Will Follow You Into the Dark” shows up on Amy Millan’s second solo album Masters Of The Burial. The Broken Social Scene/Stars singer’s been performing it live for years, but this is the first studio version of the somber Plans song. Her new collection also includes covers of songs by two very Canadian artists — Sarah (no relation to Nick) Harmer’s old band Weeping Tile and folk/country singer Jenny Whiteley — along with guest spots form Stars bandmate Evan Cranley, Leslie Feist, and the Stills’ Liam O’Neil, among others. Here, we get the lady’s side of the post-death pact.
