Kurt Vile, Sharon Van Etten, St. Vincent, more to cover The Velvet Underground & Nico on upcoming tribute album

A new Velvet Underground & Nico tribute album is in the works. The record is set to feature covers from St. Vincent, Sharon Van Etten, Kurt Vile, and more.

Prior to passing away in 2020, legendary producer Hal Willner helmed the tribute album called I’ll Be Your Mirror. As Todd Haynes’ new documentary on the band is gearing up for release on Apple+, Verve Records has announced the release date for the tribute album. I’ll Be Your Mirror is set for release on September 24th, and today they’ve revealed the tracklist.

The album features covers of all 11 songs from 1967’s Velvet Underground & Nico. The album features covers from R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe, and a whole slew of collaborations. Today, we’ve gotten a preview of the album with Kurt Vile & The Violator’s rendition of “Run Run Run.”

I’ll Be Your Mirror sees Michael Stipe kicking off the album with “Sunday Morning.” The National’s Matt Berninger adds his own twist to “I’m Waiting For the Man” and Courtney Barnett takes on the title track.
