The singer-songwriter has been performing covers throughout her tour, and in the studio during the past few months. She performed a cover of Death Cab for Cutie’s “I Will Follow You Into The Dark,” with the band’s frontman Ben Gibbard during a show in Denver, Joni Mitchell’s “For Free,” during a performance in Seattle, and a performance of that same song in the studio alongside Weyes Blood and Zella Day. This track originally appeared on Mitchell’s 1970 album release Ladies Of The Canyon, while “I Will Follow You Into the Dark,” was featured on Death Cab for Cutie’s 2005 album Plans.
Further covers were performed in Berkeley, California where the performer covered Bob Dylan’s classic “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright” alongside 1960s folk legend Joan Baez. Earlier in the year she also performed alongside Leonard Cohen’s son Adam Cohen, to cover his father’s classic “Chelsea Hotel No. 2” at Jones Beach Theater.
