Parquet Courts have shared their jagged and krauty cover of Neil Young’s tune “We R In Control” today and the release is suspiciously tied to pre-election night coverage. “We R in Control” originally appeared on Neil Young’s Trans album.
“I’m a big fan of whenever an artist does something different from what they’re known for – for instance, Bob Dylan’s gospel/Christian period,” says Parquet Courts’ Austin Brown on their cover. “And I have a similar affection for Neil Young’s electronic record Trans. This is my favorite song off it. We actually started it during the Human Performance sessions where we were trying to do something different as a band too, so it seemed kind of appropriate.” Listen below!
