St Vincent covers Rolling Stones song for A Bigger Splash soundtrack – listen


St Vincent has released her cover of The Rolling Stone’s track ‘Emotional Rescue’ as a featured song on the soundtrack to Luca Guadagnino’s latest film, A Bigger Splash.

Annie Clark takes on the disco-era Rolling Stones track with her own unique aesthetic, which fits the track alarmingly well. The cover also seems to draw a lot of influence from Prince’s 80’s era, whilst still retaining both her own and the Rolling Stones’ signature sounds.

Entitled after the famous David Hockney painting, A Bigger Splash is loosely inspired by the 1969 film La Piscine. The film stars Tilda Swinton as famous rock star Marianne Lane star, who goes on a vacation with her filmmaker boyfriend (Matthias Schoenaerts) on the remote island of Pantelleria. Whilst on vacation, they are disrupted by an unexpected visit from one of her old flames, Harry (Ralph Fiennes) and his daughter Penelope (Dakota Johnson).

A Bigger Splash is out in cinemas now. Listen to St Vincent’s cover of ‘Emotional Rescue’  below.
