The always busy songwriter Mark Kozelek will soon revisit his Sun Kil Moon project with a proper full-length called Universal Themes. Ahead of that album's release, Kozelek has contributed a cover of Led Zeppelin's "Sick Again" to a new tribute compilation.
The track, which closes out Physical Graffiti, was treated to a bummer folk makeover courtesy of Kozelek. Here, the singer maintains his groaning, ever-sad voice while calmly strumming an acoustic guitar. Eventually some backing instruments, percussion and additional vocals join in, but this sounds nothing like Led Zeppelin.
Listen to Sun Kil Moon's take on "Sick Again" below courtesy of Stereogum. The song will appear on Physical Graffiti Redrawn, a new, all-covers version of the album that will be bundled as a free CD with the April issue of MOJO.
