Yuck cover Elliott Smith’s “Bled White” — listen

Off the forthcoming Say Yes! tribute album, due out this fall


Say Yes! A Tribute to Elliott Smith is a forthcoming, star-studded tribute album to Elliott Smith, due out on October 14th through Laundromat Records. The 15-track collection sees artists such as J. Mascis, WaxahatcheeSun Kil Moon, and Yuck pay their homage by tackling selections from across the late singer-songwriter’s vast catalog.

Already we’ve heard Juliana Hatfield’s cover of “Needle in the Hay” and Julien Baker’s heartbreaking take on “Ballad of Big Nothing”. Now, Yuck have shared their spin on 1998’s XO cut “Bled White”. Here, the London natives tap into their ’90s, noise-rock sound to deliver a fuzzier yet relatively faithful rendition.

Stream it below.

Here’s Smith’s original for comparison:
