Listen to St. Vincent Cover The Rolling Stones’ “Emotional Rescue”

Music News St. Vincent

A Bigger Splash lived up to its name at the 2015 Venice Film Festival. The Italian-French English language film, which stars Tilda Swinton as a famous rock star and Ralph Fiennes as an old friend, was nominated for the prestigious Golden Lion. It didn’t win, but it ended up taking home the Soundtrack Stars Award—and with this delightfully funky cover of the Stones’ “Emotional Rescue” by St. Vincent featured, it’s easy to see how that happened.

St. Vincent had the following to say about the song in a newsletter:

i saw an 11 AM showing of “i am love” at the sunshine cinema on houston street. i walked out of the theater in a daze, wandered into a nearby church, found the last pew, and wept for an hour. so when luca asked me to be involved in his latest film, i said yes a thousand times and then once more. luca, tilda fucking swinton, ralph, matthias, dakota- all made a beautiful film. so proud to have worked with sounwave(!!!) and terrace martin(!!!) on this stones track. they are a dream team. hope you enjoy. xx

A Bigger Splash hits American theaters on May 13.
