Sharon Van Etten is no stranger to cover songs: Hers have been on the receiving end of tributes by Bon Iver, among others. Here, the Jersey-born singer-songwriter--who has two stunning albums out, Because I Was In Love and Epic--invited her tourmates Ari and Laurel (a.k.a. Little Scream) to help out on a slow-burning cover of Fine Young Cannibals' 1989 smash hit "She Drives Me Crazy." Rather than imitate Roland Gift's weird falsetto, Van Etten goes slightly twangy, with predictably fantastic results. Enjoy.
