Sharon Van Etten and Julien Baker are set to cover Nine Inch Nails and Smashing Pumpkins for a new seven-inch single, soundtracking a future issue of Image Comics series, What’s the Furthest Place From Here.
The vinyl release will feature Van Etten covering Nine Inch Nails’ classic ‘Hurt’, while Baker will provide her take of Smashing Pumpkins’ ‘1979’.
Written by Matthew Rosenberg and illustrated by Tyler Boss, What’s The Furthest Place From here? is a post-apocalyptic coming of age story. Each issue so far has come with an accompanying vinyl, with contributions from Joyce Manor, Screaming Females, and Chubby and the Gang.
“Having Julien Baker and Sharon Van Etten record songs is really beyond anything we could have hoped for” Rosenberg explains. “Tyler and I regularly listen to both of their work while making this book, so having them provide the actual soundtrack for the issue has been really surreal in the best possible way.”
