LSTN: Gardens & Villa Cover Fleetwood Mac’s “Gypsy”

Today, Paste Magazine premiered Gardens & Villa’s new cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Gypsy” and it is fantastic. Slowed down and infused with the sounds we’ve come to know G&V for, “Gypsy” deserves a good listen or five. Throw this one on at your next summer BBQ or late night hang and you’re bound to be the coolest cat at the party. The original track appeared on 1983′s Mirage, while the cover is for the compilation Just Tell Me That You Want Me: A Tribute To Fleetwood Mac, set for release in August. Antony, The Kills, Lykke Li, MGMT, Washed Out and Best Coast are just a handful of other artists who are on the covers album. Find out more HERE.

Listen to “Gypsy” at Paste Magazine.

“When we were approached to record a version of ‘Gypsy’ for the compilation we were all for it, as most of the guys in the band have an intimate connection with the music of Fleetwood Mac. It’s sensitive and timeless. It was a beautiful experience. We’re really thankful for this opportunity.” – Adam Rasmussen
