Mountain Man have shared a cover of Fiona Apple's 2012 song "Hot Knife" for their ongoing Mountain Man Sings series via Nonesuch Records.

"If we followed Questlove's advice and made gratitude lists before we went to bed every night, Fiona Apple would be at the top every time," the band explained in a statement. "She tells the truth like no one else does. Thank you, Fiona Apple. We love you."

Previously, the trio — formed by Sylvan Esso's Amelia Meath, Daughter of Swords' Alexandra Sauser-Monnig and Molly Sarlé — released Mountain Man Sings covers of tracks from Neil YoungKacey Musgraves, Wilco and John Denver, as well as a pair of holiday specials, "Greensleeves" and "White Christmas."

Their last full-length album was 2018's Magic Ship. Back in December, they joined forces on Sylvan Esso's WITH LOVE EP alongside members of Bon Iver, Wye Oak, Hiss Golden Messenger, Mr. Twin Sister and Hand Habits.
