The Gaslight Anthem "Skinny Love" (Bon Iver cover)
Published Oct 31, 2012Gaslight Anthem often crank their amps for their heart-tugging blue-collar anthems, but the band dial down the distortion for their accurate attempt at Bon Iver's "Skinny Love." The acoustic strummer may transpose a key from the For Emma, Forever Ago number, and vocalist Brian Fallon trots out a somewhat gravellier coo than Bon Iver mastermind Justin Vernon, but the band pretty well keeps things the same for the gentle number.
The cover will appear on the band's upcoming Record Store Day EP, Hold You Up, which arrives November 23.
