Published May 17, 2016Kathleen Hanna is shining new light on Bruce Springsteen's classic "Dancing in the Dark" single. The Julie Ruin frontwoman is a gun for hire, as it were, as she's been tapped to deliver a cover version for upcoming feature film Maggie's Plan.
The tune has been stripped of its '80s keyboards and rock rhythms to instead play out as an acoustic-strumming slice of indie folk. Accompanied by actor/musician Tommy Buck and the sound of a melodica, Hanna twists her familiar vocal style around the Boss's fired-up and angsty lines about getting older and wondering where the hell your life is going.
You can't start a fire without a spark, they say. If you're feeling a little directionless today, rev yourself up by giving the song a listen down below.
Maggie's Plan, which stars Ethan Hawke and Greta Gerwig, hits theatres this Friday.
