Watch Ryan Adams Cover Vampire Weekend
Showing up like just another fan tribute on Facebook today, Ryan Adams shared a video from his bedroom, where he covered Vampire Weekend’s “Mansard Roof” with a simple webcam.
Adams’ take is a mellowed out version of the uptempo original. As he puts it, “I do it no justice but I love it. I sung it imagining being on a beach made of diamonds with a darkened night sky full of twinkling sand.”
We can only hope that with the new album coming coming out, he will retreat back to his old ways, giving us more late night blog sessions.
Head on over to Adams’ Facebook page and check out the video here.
