Listen to slowthai Cover Elliott Smith’s “Needle in the Hay”

UK rapper slowthai has covered Elliott Smith’s song “Needle in the Hay” for an Apple Music Home Session, as Stereogum points out. The original track appeared on Smith’s 1995 self-titled LP. Listen to slowthai’s take on the track, as well as the rapper’s performance of his own song “adhd,” below.

“The lyrics to both tracks mean a lot to me,” slowthai told Apple Music. “‘adhd’ because I feel it’s inward-facing and ‘Needle in the Hay’ because that song got me through a lot of down days.”

slowthai released his latest studio album TYRON earlier this month.
