Courtney Barnett covers the Velvet Underground and Nico’s ‘I’ll Be Your Mirror’ for tribute compilation

Courtney Barnett has released a new cover of The Velvet Underground and Nico’s “I’ll Be Your Mirror.”

The cover comes from Verve Records’ forthcoming tribute compilation of the same name. Barnett truly pares back “I’ll Be Your Mirror” on this cover. With just an acoustic guitar and soft percussion, Barnett’s stream-of-consciousness vocals take the lead. This twangy cover shines the track in a new light entirely.

Barnett delivers famous lyrics like, “I’ll be your mirror/ Reflect what you are, in case you don’t know.”
