Listen: Kurt Vile covers The Rolling Stones’ ‘No Expectations’

He reworked the 'Beggars Banquet' hit with his distinctive country twang

Kurt Vile has taken part in the Spotify Singles series, where he performed a new rendition of his Bottle It In track “Loading Zones” alongside a cover of The Rolling Stones’ “No Expectations.”

Vile has re-worked the Beggars Banquet hit in his own style, featuring his distinctive country twang, monotonous croons, and bouncy guitar lines. This rendition revolves around a new found vulnerability that the original doesn’t quite seem to have, while still maintaining Keith Richards’ passion for country as Vile downbeats the original track, bringing it somewhere new entirely.
