Phosphorescent’s Matthew Houck, who nabbed Paste’s Album of the Year title with the excellent Muchacho and placed second in the song category with “Song for Zula,” has turned his attention to folk legend Bob Dylan. As part of Starbucks’ (yeah, the coffee people) Valentine’s Day compilation Sweethearts 2014, Houck covers “Tomorrow is a Long Time,” a Dylan demo that wasn’t released until 1971 on a greatest hits volume. The result is distinctly Houck’s, his voice distant and sad and altogether less confrontational than Dylan’s.
You can listen to the track below. Sweethearts 2014 is due out on Feb. 4, and will also feature performances by Vampire Weekend, Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Sharon Jones and Fiona Apple.
