Courtney Barnett and Vagabon Cover Sharon Van Etten's "Don't Do It"
The track appears on the upcoming 'epic Ten'
Published Apr 01, 2021Sharon Van Etten's epic Ten is due in just a couple of weeks, and ahead of its release, Courtney Barnett and Vagabon have teamed up yet again to record a duet for the reissue. Today, the pair have offered a version of Van Etten's "Don't Do It" for the 10th anniversary reissue.
"Courtney and I found that we have a beautiful collaborating chemistry when we made our cover of 'Reason to Believe,' which came out earlier this year," Vagabon said in a statement. "So when CB asked me to join her in singing 'Don't Do It' by the inimitable Sharon Van Etten, I was thrilled! 'Don't Do It' is one of my favourite tracks off Epic and it was such a pleasure to do a version of it with Courtney."
Barnett added: "After nearly a year of solitude, I was so grateful for this opportunity to create something different with people that I greatly admire."
The track follows covers of "Dsharpg" by Shamir, "Save Yourself" by Lucinda Williams, "Peace Signs" by IDLES and "A Crime" by Big Red Machine. The album will also include artists like Fiona Apple and St. Panther covering songs from Van Etten's record.
As previously reported, epic Ten will be released digitally via Ba Da Bing on April 16, with the 2-LP vinyl release following on June 11.
