Orville Peck and Trixie Mattel Cover the Country Classic "Jackson"
Watch the new video from Mattel's 'Full Coverage Vol. 1'
Published Apr 30, 2021A couple years back, drag star Trixie Mattel slid into Orville Peck's DMs to say that she's a big fan. Now, the pair have teamed up for a cover of the country classic "Jackson."
The song recalls the famous rendition by Johnny Cash and June Carter, as Peck and Mattel duet over a twangy arrangement that chugs along with the brisk pace of a runaway train. For the accompanying video, Peck and Mattel don their signature snazzy duds and perform in an empty theatre while backed by a (somewhat socially distanced) trio.
This cover of "Jackson" comes from Mattel's newly released covers EP Full Coverage Vol. 1. Watch the video below.
