Many artists have chosen to honor the late Kurt Cobain in their performances this week, as April 5th marked the 20th anniversary of his death. This includes a spectacular rendition of “Lithium” by St. Vincent, who brought it to her set at Chicago’s Riviera on Saturday.
St. Vincent, who released her fifth studio album in February, a self-titled masterpiece that’s still picking up plenty of acclaim, will be wrapping up her spring tour this week in Buffalo, NY. Until she hits the road again, we’ve got the new LP’s video “Digital Witness,” as well as streams for “Prince Johnny” and “Del Rio” to keep us company.
The version of “Lithium” the songstress unleashes in the video below, however, is simply stunning – props to St. Vincent for delivering such a great cover to her crowd, and offering an appropriate tribute to Mr. Cobain.
