Fever Ray Covers Gabriel's "Mercy Street"

One of our dark horse favorite Peter Gabriel tunes!! Via NME
"It's an interpretation of Peter Gabriel's 'Mercy Street'. We made it more intense and faster to fit our excentric pecussionists and energetic live musicians. It is a monotone track but we worked with the dynamics trying to make it sparkle. I listened to it a lot when I was around 15, and it still moves me. It made me start reading Anne Sexton too."

Absolutely love Fever Ray's cover of Peter Gabriels' 'Mercy Street'- have you heard Peter Gabriel's version of 'Flume'?
You can have a listen here, if you're interested:
