Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs has released a haunting new cover of the Smashing Pumpkins song “Bullet with Butterfly Wings”. For nostalgia reasons, I’m not sure I dig it more than the original, but I definitely dig it. It’s part of the soundtrack for the upcoming Amazon Prime series “Hanna” premiere on February 3, 2019.
The original was was the first single off of The Smashing Pumpkins’ 1995 double album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness and gave the band their first taste mainstream success being their first single to crack the Billboard US Top 40. The album went on to be the Pumpkins’ best seller.
