When we saw that Patti Smith performed Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” Thursday night, we couldn’t believe our eyes. We kept hoping for footage to surface and it finally has. The video itself is far away, but the audio is quite good. Check it out below.

Performing the song in New York’s Battery Park, Smith described it as the “song of the summer.” No argument here. Sure, she forgets some of the words, but Smith ably covers by improving lines about how much she “fucking love[s] this song!” We know you’ve heard approximately 842 “Rolling in the Deep” covers already, but come on, one more for Patti.
