Lykke Li: "Silver Springs"

Lykke Li 2012

Listen to Lykke Li's contribution to Just Tell Me That You Want Me - A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac, her rendition of "Silver Springs." The song was written by Stevie Nicks for the legendary album Rumours but was instead regulated to b-side status for the Lindsey Buckingham-fronted 1796 single "Go Your Own Way." Which is tragic on so many levels, chief among them is the fact that Nicks wrote "Silver Springs" after her messy breakup with Buckingham.

Li's rendition soaks Nicks' rich melody in a sea of the reverb she is so found of (see: Wounded Rhymes) and makes great use of the song's build up toward the end.

Just Tell Me That You Want Me is out 8/14 on Starbucks' Hear Music.
