Antony Hegarty (ie. Antony sans the accompanying Johnsons) has contributed a tiny heartbeat of a cover to the spectacular Just Tell Me That You Want Me Fleetwood Mac tribute album.
The record features a little bouquet of worthwhile listens and some utter gems, like Best Coast’s gorgeous take on Rhiannon, and The Kills cover of Dreams. Marianne Faithfull also has a look in.
Antony takes on the oft-covered Landslide, which has appeared in many forms on various records over the years, and this version is so delicate and determined, it sounds like it’s being sung to you by a battered, bewildered pigeon after it flies into a window.
Nicks apparently wrote Landslide while staring at the Colorado Rocky Mountains trying to decide whether to go back to school, or to carry on being with Lindsey Buckingham, and being in Fleetwood Mac.
Another reason I need to pilgrimage to Colorado.
So, take this love, take it down
Oh if you climb a mountain and you turn around
If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well the landslide will bring you down, down
