Buffalo Springfield finally reunited last year for two shows, and they’re rumored to be planning a full tour. So what better time to dust off the old LPs and find a song to cover? That’s just what indie pop favorites Metric did, pulling “Expecting to Fly” from the archives. Neil Young and co. didn’t play the song during the reunion shows; here’s hoping they revive it themselves on tour.

Like colors? Then you’ll love this! The trippy “Expecting to Fly” video reminds one of the zooming-through-space scene of 2001: A Space Odyssey. But with a more pleasant soundtrack. And Emily Haines popping up occasionally. It may not have much in the way of plot, but it’s a well-matched accompaniment to the spacey orchestral tune. Watch it below.

  1. GORGEOUS cover! The more familiar I get with her work, the more convinced I am that Emily Haines is one of the modern musicians destined for legendary status!
