It’s no wonder that an artist might want to cover their favorite song by one of their favorite bands. It’s even less surprising when that favorite band is Death Cab for Cutie and the artist in question is touring with them. Such is precisely the case for Frightened Rabbit frontman Scott Hutchison.
Before he headed out on tour opening for Josh Ritter, Frightened Rabbit’s Scott Hutchison tweeted that he would perform a new cover every night. Ritter stepped up his game accordingly and every performance so far has delivered a few covers for lucky concertgoers. So far Hutchison has performed Prince’s “Purple Rain” and Band of Horses’ “The Funeral,” while Ritter has countered with his full-band version of the Velvet Underground’s “Pale Blue Eyes.”
