Listen to Fleet Foxes cover Nina Simone

Robin Pecknold and Casey Wescott from Fleet Foxes were the guests on Lauren Laverne’s BBC Radio 6 Music show today. They performed “If You Need To, Keep Time on Me” from the band’s latest album Crack-Up. They also covered the song, “Do What You Gotta Do,” which was written by Jimmy Webb and performed by Nina Simone on her 1968 record ’Nuff Said! “I just love what she did to the melody,” Pecknold said. “I love her melodic phrasing.” Listen to the session here.
