Lykke Li: “Silver Springs” (2 of 5)

We’ve always loved Lykke Li’s torch songs – tracks like “Little Bit” and “I Follow Rivers” are haunting in their minimalistic vulnerability, unforgettably gorgeous, and almost painfully sincere, and the same is true even when she’s not performing her own music – evidenced here in her cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Silver Springs,” an outtake from their classic 1977 record Rumours that she interpreted for the upcoming tribute record Just Tell Me That You Want Me. Li imbues the confessional intimacy of Fleetwood’s original with an incredible, chilling massiveness that makes Stevie Nicks’ heartbreaking and confrontational lyrics – “my voice will haunt you, you’ll never get away from the sound of the woman that loved you” – sound threateningly, gut-wrenchingly, beautifully ethereal.
