Listen: Vampire Weekend covers Bruce Springsteen’s ‘I’m Goin’ Down’ for Spotify Singles

In addition to a piano-led rendition of 'This Life'

Vampire Weekend participated in a new Spotify Singles session, where they recorded a piano-led rendition of their Father Of The Bride track, “This Life,” and covered Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m Goin’ Down.”

The jangly band’s new rendition of “This Life” is quite different than the album version, as it comes as a stripped-back, intimate, lullaby-like tune. Their cover of Springsteen’s 1985 track is particularly powerful, as Ezra Koenig and co. originally covered it for their iTunes Session EP in 2010, so it shows Vampire Weekend’s growth as a whole.
