Listen to Van Etten’s version of ‘Some Things Last A Long Time’ below now.
Last year, Warpaint’s Jenny Lee Lindberg shared a cover of the track, with her version being released on vinyl for Record Store Day. “Years ago I was asked to participate on a tribute album for Daniel Johnston,” she said in a statement at the time.
“I’ve always loved his music and overall innocence he conveyed through his music and art. The tribute never happened, and I decided to carry on, see what I could come up with one rainy day in Pasadena.”
Johnston died in September 2019 from a heart attack. He was 58 years old.
Meanwhile, Van Etten was given the cover treatment herself by a host of artists as part of the anniversary reissue of her 2010 album ‘Epic’. Fiona Apple, Shamir, IDLES and more were among those who contributed.
