Walter Sickert Covers Nirvana

This is a slightly older cover, but we love cover songs at If It's Too Loud..., and this is Walter Sickert after all, so... 

Originally recorded and posted back in 2014 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death, with this past weekend marking the 25th anniversary of the release of Nevermind (we're so old...), Walter Sickert's cover of Nirvana's "Something In the Way" has resurfaced on the band's various social media accounts. It's a haunting cover, but it is Walter Sickert covering a song that's already pretty haunting on its own. Sickert's version stays completely true to the original, and it's the best kind of tribute possible.
