Au Revoir Simone feat. Nikolai Fraiture — ‘Fade Into You’ (cover)

by Eric Van Dril · 5 comments

Nikolai played bass and drums on Au Revoir Simone’s cover of Mazzy Star song “Fade Into You”. He also produced the the track, which you can listen to here.

“I saw Au Revoir Simone perform the song on kexp and had some ideas for how it could be recorded,” Fraiture told Rolling Stone. “I love the band and met Erika Spring through some friends in New York. I sent them a rough version of the track. They agreed to come into the studio to do vocals and sent in their keyboard parts while on tour. They each did just a few vocal takes but sounded great.”

Nothing beats the mood of the original but this is a pretty cool take on it. Great song.
