Says the band about the track:

We first met Reed Morano in 2013 when she acted as cinematographer for our “Bitter Rivals” video. Not only was she a stellar DP but she was exceptionally kind, funny, creative, smart and humble. She left a real impression on us and her tremendous success is no surprise. We’ve kept in touch with Reed over the years as her body of work has grown, and were honored this summer when she asked us to cover Lead Belly’s “Where Did You Sleep Last Night” for the trailer for her upcoming film The Rhythm Section. The Nirvana and Lead Belly versions of the song are total classics, but with some apprehension we decided to give it a shot. Reed and her team made an incredible trailer, and we’re happy to share the full version of our cover today.
