Listen Up: Amy Millan's "I Will Follow You Into the Dark" Cover

The Death Cab for Cutie song "I Will Follow You Into the Dark" is heartbreaking no matter how it's performed, but Amy Millan's country-tinged version feels a little less like a sock to the gut than the original. Perhaps it's that her soft, lovely voice is so comforting, but somehow this one doesn't emotionally destroy me quite as much as Death Cab's.

Millan plays with the bands Stars and Broken Social Scene, but this Death Cab cover will appear on Masters of the Burial, her second solo album.

Apparently Millan has performed the cover live a few times, but now there's a studio recording so you can have the sweet, tender song gently — but firmly — squeeze your heart in its fist any time you'd like. To hear a twangier version of "I Will Follow You Into the Dark,"



Hat tip to Stereogum for premiering the tune.

she has a nice voice, but no one will top the original

I'm going to be honest and say that I don't like country, but this is just bad. LOVE the DCFC version though.

Er, no. I enjoy country music, but her take ruined Death Cab's song. Plus, she's a little flat on a lot of notes.
