We all know that Rod Stewart‘s rendition of “Forever Young” is a cover of Bob Dylan (well, basically) so it always seems right to classify any cover of the song as a cover of a cover, or a cover of a minor re-write. Sacramento-based singer songwriters of Golden Youth have produced quite a cover of a cover, stripping down the song that was in everyone’s graduation video.

The song, which is accompanied by a hipster black and white video, seems to play out more like a reassuring lullaby rather than as an anthem like the original. Although Stephanie Lauren’s vocals seem a little out of range, they oddly harmonize with fellow singer Kyle Monroe’s.
