Australian radio station Triple J has something we here at Cover Me love called “Like A Version.” The station wrangles some great artists to interpret whatever song they feel like covering. Sharon Van Etten recently stopped in, talked about how she is touring with Nick Cave later this year, and put out a heavy rendition of Cave’s “People Ain’t No Good.”

Nick Cave can be a hard artist to cover simply because of the gravity of his work. It is universal and at the same time completely personal. Van Etten manages to capture the heavy heart of this song, no easy feat. Check out the fantastic cover below:
