Andrew Bird, Lucius Share Performance Of Cover Of The Velvet Undergrounds Venus In Furs

Andrew Bird and Lucius recently released a live recording of their cover version of The Velvet Underground‘s “Venus in Furs.”

The cover version sees Bird putting his own spin on the track, using loop pedals to fill out the performance and plucking the violin like a banjo alongside Lucius vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig‘s harmonies.

Bird and Lucius were among a slew of high-profile acts who contributed to the recently released track-by-track covers album I’ll Be Your Mirror: A Tribute to The Velvet Underground & Nico, which was executive produced by the late Hal Willner, a longtime friend of Lou Reed and renowned producer.
