Mountain Man Launch Cowl of Fiona Apple’s “Sizzling Knife”: Hear
Mountain Man have released a cover of Fiona Apple’s “Hot Knife,” the closing song from 2012’s The Idler Wheel…, as part of the band’s ongoing covers series. The folk trio have covered “Hot Knife” extensively on tour. Check out the single, available via Nonesuch, below.
“If we followed Questlove’s advice and made gratitude lists before we went to bed every night, Fiona Apple would be at the top every time,” the band wrote in a press statement. “She tells the truth like no one else does. Thank you, Fiona Apple. We love you.”
Last year, Mountain Man also covered Kacey Musgraves’ “Slow Burn.” The group has previously shared covers of songs by John Denver and Wilco, plus Irving Berlin’s “White Christmas.”
