Nicole Atkins & Mark Lanegan – November
Nicole Atkins & Mark Lanegan - November Rain

Release Date: Out Now

It is November and it is raining so what better tune to pop on than a bleak, Country infused cover of the Guns’n’Roses classic ‘November Rain’. Nashville chanteuse Nicole Atkins has teamed up with the mercurial Mark Lanegan of the Screaming Trees and Queens of the Stone Age to give the track a good going over. But this is no straight cover, oh no. The lap steel guitar, slowed down tempo and the aforementioned Country stylings are glorious, making the original only vaguely familiar. Then turning this in to a dead-eyed duet puts this in a very special category along with Johnny Cash’s ‘Hurt’ and the Kylie’n’Cave duet ‘Wild Rose’ in terms of songs that you didn’t expect to be good but really were.
